1. I need to design a coil that generates a magnetic field in just one direction and with a gradient in the same direction but not in the others. ie., dBx/x=0, dBy/y=0 and dBz/z = K. Does anyone know if this is possible?. I appreciated if someone can answer this question...... Thank You...

3. To generate a magnetic field in just one direction ?

Sorry, but its impossible.

May I ask, what is this for ?

Why? All magnetic fields have a direction, and permanent magnets have fixed fields.

The original poster needs to clarify their question, do you men going out of one pole in a straight line and on forever? if so this is certainly theoretically possible....

Maybe leo can tell us how...

5. Certainly it has been proposed that "monopoles" existed at one time, although creating them is very difficult and also very dangerous.

The correct answer is that if a magnet were sufficiently strong and had diametrically opposed poles extending to 'infinity' the curvature of our universe could re-unite the poles in a straight line, but, the continued expansion of the universe together with the magnetic field travelling at light speed would mean they could continue in a straight line indefinitely.

This could not happen however as the motion of the earth through the heavens would cause the lines to assume a complex set of linked corkscrews.

So, the answer is "no" isnt it ?

8. Impractical yes, impossible no.
