I have read that the electric field from a point charge fall off as 1/(r*r) since it is analogous to(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

variation of intensity of radation from source (whose geometric proof depends on solid-angle), similarily is there any geometric explanation why magnetic field in the stated case fall off as 1/(r*r).
