I am trying to recreate the Stern-Gerlach experiment and am having trouble trying to calculate the gradient magnetic field. I am using two magnets with one having a sharp edge and the other flat. I have calculated what the deflection will be of the electron will be in terms of the gradient field, but I do not know how to calculate what the gradient is knowing the dimensions of the magnets.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
