Problem 1
A sphere of radius R and infinite magnetic permeability
is placed within a uniform magnetic field at infinity,
H (r f, T ) H 0 iz H 0 (ir cosT iT sin T ) .
The medium outside the sphere is free space.
a) Find the magnetic flux density B(r, T ) for r ! R .
b) Find the equation of the magnetic field lines
c) Find the vector potential A(r, T ) .
d) For r ! R , the governing equation for the vector
potential is ’2 A 0 . Show that the solution of part
(c) satisfies ’ 2 A 0 .
e) For the separation magnetic field line that passes
through the point (r R, T S / 2) find its distance
D from x 0 at (r f, T S ) .
f) Draw the magnetic field lines similar to those
shown above.
