- Kivelson and Russell 2.6.
- Using the magnetic field line equations, write
the magnitude of the dipole magentic field in terms of the :
- L paramter and radial distance r,
- L parameter and the latitude λ.
Consider a B field that is purely in the x-direction with the form:
B(z) = B0 tanh(z/d)
Find the current density (magnitude and direction) and the
plasma pressure distribution for this equilibrium.
