What is a magnetic dipole?

Describe its magnetic field distribution.

A current loop with dimensions much smaller than the

distance between the loop and the observation point is

called a magnetic dipole. This is because the pattern of

its magnetic field lines is similar to that of a permanent

magnet, as well as to the pattern of the electric field lines

of the electric dipole
