A short magnet produces a deflection of 37° in a deflection magnetometer in Tan-A position when placed at a separation of 10 cm from the needle. Find the ratio of the magnetic moment of the magnet to the earth’s horizontal magnetic field.
separation between the magnet and the needle, d = 10cm =0.1m
deflection in the magnetometer in the given position when placed in the magnetic field of a short magnet, θ = 37°
let M be the magnetic moment of the magnet and BH be earth's horizontal magnetic field.

Two bar magnets are placed close to each other with their opposite poles facing each other. In absence of other forces, the magnets are pulled towards each other and their kinetic energy increases. Does it contradict our earlier knowledge that magnetic forces cannot do any work and hence cannot increase kinetic energy of a system?HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2
Magnetic scalar potential is defined as
Apply this equation to a closed curve enclosing a long straight wire. The RHS of the above equation is then –μ0i by Ampere’s law. We see that even when . Can we have a magnetic scalar potential in this case?
