Magnetic Dipole Field 3D Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Magnetic Dipole Field 3D Model displays the field lines and field vectors of a dipole located at the origin and oriented along the z-axis.  Users can compute the field line passing through a point by dragging the a marker within the 3D view.  Users can also visualize the field vectors in a plane passing though the center of the dipole.

The Magnetic Dipole Field 3D Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_em_MagneticDipole3D.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  EJS is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models.
