The image above represents magnetic potential.

To compute for magnetic potential, four essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Magnetic Permeability of Vacuum (μ _{o}), Strength of Magnetic Pole (m), Relative Magnetic Permeability (μ_{R}) **and

**Seperating Distance (r).**

The formula for calculating magnetic potential:

v = ^{μom} / _{4πμRr}

Where:

v = Magnetic Potential

μ_{o} = Magnetic Permeability of Vacuum

m = Strength of Magnetic Pole

μ_{R} = Relative Magnetic Permeability

r = Separating Distance

Let’s solve an example;

Find the magnetic potential when the magnetic permeability of vaccum is 1.2566371E-6, the strength of magnetic pole is 10, the relative magnetic permeability is 22 and seperating distance is 18.

This implies that;

μ_{o} = Magnetic Permeability of Vacuum = 1.2566371E-6

m = Strength of Magnetic Pole = 10

μ_{R} = Relative Magnetic Permeability = 22

r = Separating Distance = 18

v = ^{μom} / _{4πμRr}

v = ^{(0.0000012566371)(10)} / _{4π(22)(18)}

v = ^{0.000012566371000000001} / _{4976.282}

v = 2.52e-9

Therefore, the **magnetic potential** is **2.52e-9.**
