## Main Question or Discussion Point

If magnetic charges existed, would the strength of the field be the same as a electric charge? Would you be able to plug it in to the equation of coulomb's law? If so, what would the constant be? The same?

Well if they don't exist, then who's to say that they would have the same strength as the E.M.F.?

You would need to use the permeability of free space rather than the permittivity, but otherwise yes.If magnetic charges existed, would the strength of the field be the same as a electric charge?

[tex]e g_n =\frac{n}{2} \hbar c,[/tex]

where [itex]e[/itex] is the elementary electric charge and [itex]g_n[/itex] possible values for the magnetic charge with [itex]n \in \mathbb{Z}[/itex].
