What does the divergence of magnetic field lines near the ends of a current carrying straight solenoid indicate?

Answer :

The divergence of the magnetic field lines near the ends of a current carrying straight solenoid indicates that that the solenoid behaves like a magnet. As like magnetic field lines makes loop around a magnet similarly the divergence of magnetic field lines near the ends of current carrying straight solenoid indicates that solenoid behaves like magnet. The divergence of magnetic field lines shows that the magnetic field is strongest at the poles/ends of the solenoid.
