"Magnetic brooms" are used in some space science experiments to sweep electrons away from some portion of the instrument (for example detectors in the focal plane of an x-ray telescope). I want to look at the field configuration of a magnetic broom. Has anyone used Mathematica to plot field lines? Thanks.
