## What is the formula of distance in magnetic field?

And the equation is simple and beautiful: basically it is I = 1/d2 , where d is distance (or I = 1/r2 in the photo, where r is distance) and I is intensity. It is often assumed that the strength of a magnetic field also obeys the inverse square law.

**How magnetic field varies with distance?**

For both monopoles and dipoles, the field strength decreases as the distance from the source increases. , often called the inverse square law. For electric dipoles, the field strength decreases more rapidly with distance; as R -3 .

**How do you find the magnetic field of a bar magnet?**

You can use a plotting compass or iron filings to detect a magnetic field:

- put a piece of paper over a magnet (this stops the iron filings sticking to the magnet)
- sprinkle iron filings onto the paper.
- gently tap the paper to spread the filings out.
- observe and record the results.

### What is the relationship between distance and magnetic field strength?

1 Answer. Magnetic force obeys an inverse square law with distance. The equation for magnetic force is similar to Coulomb’s Law (if you are familiar with it). But the key point is that the force is inversely proportional to the distance squared (i.e. it obeys an inverse square law with distance).

**Is the relationship between magnetic field strength and distance linear?**

We can see that we get a linear relationship between the magnetic field strength and the inverse square of the distance from the magnet.

**How does distance affect the magnetic field of a magnet?**

## How does distance affect magnets?

If the distance between two magnets with like poles gets smaller, then the repelling force between them will get bigger, because the force between two magnets gets stronger as they get closer together, and weaker as they get farther apart.

**Where is the magnetic field the strongest in a bar magnet?**

It is strongest at the poles. So, what are magnetic poles? Magnetic poles are opposite ends of a magnet where the magnetic field is strongest.

**Where are the magnetic fields strongest near a bar magnet?**

The magnetic field lines are densest at the center and least dense between the two poles just outside the bar magnet. The magnetic field is strongest at the center and weakest between the two poles just outside the bar magnet.

### How does distance between magnets affect the magnetic force between them?

**Is magnetic field dependent on distance?**

The magnetic field from a wire decreases with distance from the wire. Instead of the field being proportional to the inverse square of the distance, as is the electric field from a point charge, the magnetic field is inversely proportional to the distance from the wire.
