Dueling Magnetic Fields: Magnitude

APPH12-RBSW7P

Two strong magnets are placed so that the magnetic field of Magnet A has a magnetic field of $1.50\text{ T}$ to the West at Point P. Magnet B has a magnetic field of $0.80\text{ T}$ to the North at the same Point P.

What is the magnitude of the net magnetic field at point P due to both magnet A and magnet B?

A

It cannot be represented by a single number because magnetic fields do not interact.

B

$2.3\text{ T}$

C

$0.70\text{ T}$

D

$1.7\text{ T}$
