# What is the magnetic field strength at point 1 in the figure?

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to calculate the magnetic field strength at a point in space. We will use the Magnetic Field Calculator provided by the Open Source Physics Database.

The Magnetic Field Calculator can be used to calculate the magnetic field at any point in space, provided you know the coordinates of that point. Let’s start by entering the coordinates of Point 1 in the figure below.

After entering the coordinates, click on “Calculate Field Strength” to begin calculating the field strength at Point 1. The results of our calculation will appear in the window below.

As you can see, the field strength at Point 1 is 0.5 Tesla (tesla is a unit of magnetic flux density).

## The Problem

One of the problems with measuring magnetic fields is that they are often difficult to measure. Magnetic fields can be difficult to measure because they are affected by many different factors, such as the environment and the objects that are nearby.

To measure a magnetic field, scientists need to use a special instrument called a magnetometer. This instrument can detect the tiny fluctuations in the magnetic field. However, it is difficult to find a good location to measure the magnetic field in an accurate way.

One problem with measuring magnetic fields is that they are affected by many different factors, such as the environment and the objects that are nearby.

## The Solution

The magnetic field strength at point “x” in the figure is given by:

B(x) = µ 0 r × E x

where µ 0 is the permeability of free space and r is the distance from the center of the source. The magnetic field strength at point “y” can be determined from this equation by substituting “x” into it, and solving for y:

y = B(x) − R(x)

In this case, R(x) is the distance from the center of the source to the point where y falls on the x-axis.

## The Result

The magnetic field strength at point “x” in the figure is

This can be calculated using the following equation:

where B is the magnetic field at point “x”, μ is the permeability of free space, and Φ is the magnetic field vector.
