Problem 5CQ

Is the Earth’s magnetic field parallel to the ground at all locations? If not, where is it parallel to the surface? Is its strength the same at all locations? If not, where is it greatest?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5CQ

The pattern of magnetic field lines of earth is similar to that of a bar magnet which is tilted at from the spinning axis of the earth.

No, the magnetic field of the Earth is not parallel to the ground at all locations. At equator field lines are parallel to the surface

The strength of the magnetic field of the Earth is not same at all locations.

The maximum strength of the magnetic field of the Earth is near the south pole of earth and is about 7.0 x  in magnitude.
