Magnetostatics is the study of magnetic fields in systems where the currents are steady not changing with time. Electrostatics and magnetostatics we have now completed our theoretical investigation of electrostatics and magnetostatics. The basic equations of interest are amperes law and gauss law for magnetostatics. It is the magnetic analogue of electrostatics, where the charges are stationary. Just as the electric field vector e is the basic quantity in electrostatics, the magneticflux density or magnetic induction b plays a fundamental. Fall semester, 2007 all lecture notes, handouts, etc. The magnetostatic energy stored in a current distribution is given by u 2. Usually magnetostatics is defined as the physics of stationary and divergence free current distributions, however, a zero divergence is a superfluous current condition that is not satisfied in case of many magnetostatics experiments in the past and present. This is the first differential equation of magnetostatics. There are trivial problems and there are tough problems.
