The image above represents magnetic moment of a diople.

To compute for magnetic moment of a diople, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Magnetic Pole Strength (m) **and **Distance Seperating Poles (l).**

The formula for calculating magnetic moment of a diople:

M = ml

Where;

M = Magnetic Moment of a Diople

m = Magnetic Pole Strength

l = Distance Seperating Poles

Let’s solve an example;

Find the magnetic moment of a diople when the magentic pole strength is 21 and the distance seperating poles is 13.

This implies that;

m = Magnetic Pole Strength = 21

l = Distance Seperating Poles = 13

M = ml

M = 21 x 13

M = 273

Therefore, the **magnetic moment of a diople **is **273.**

**Calculating the Magnetic Pole Strength when the Magnetic Moment of a Diople and the Distance Seperating Poles is Given.**

m = ^{M} / _{l}

Where;

m = Magnetic Pole Strength

M = Magnetic Moment of a Diople

l = Distance Seperating Poles

Let’s solve an example;

Find the magnetic pole strength when the magnetic moment of a diople is 30 and the distance seperating poles is 5.

This implies that;

M = Magnetic Moment of a Diople = 30

l = Distance Seperating Poles = 5

m = ^{M} / _{l}

m = ^{30} / _{5}

m = 6

Therefore, the **magnetic pole strength **is **6.**
