Magnetic Cracked Pot

submitted by: SirZerp
The magnetic fields of a cracked pot. Note - the blue ring in the center is from having two different magnets; the bottom volume is like a large ring magnet and the top is like a cylinder magnet. The interaction between the two, top and bottom, produces the blue ring eddy of flux. Also a capacitor with horizontal plates has the same field values as a vertical aligned magnet. In other words, you could design a capacitor that has the same field as the object in the video, but it would be...

This video was made about a week before the 'Magnetic Thinker' video using the same techniques. Mainly I can model any form that can be saved as a STL file, which used in 3d printing. Each STL object in a scene can have different magnetic alignments.

Science Behind the News: Quantum Computing
