Maxwell equation for the divergence of the magnetic field \( \nabla \cdot \boldsymbol{B} \). This Maxwell equation states that there are no magnetic monopoles. Magnetic fields always occur as dipoles with a south pole S and a north pole N. Thus the divergence of the magnetic field or the flux integral is always zero:`\[ \nabla \cdot \boldsymbol{B} ~=~ 0 \]`or equivalently:
\[ \oint_{A} \boldsymbol{B} ~\cdot~ \text{d}\boldsymbol{a} ~=~ 0 \]

The scalar product \(\boldsymbol{B} ~\cdot~ \text{d}\boldsymbol{a}\) only picks out the component \(\boldsymbol{B}_{||}\) of the magnetic field \(\boldsymbol{B}\) that is parallel to the \(\text{d}\boldsymbol{a}\) element.

Hey, I'm Alexander Fufa*eV*, the physicist and writer here. It is very important to me that you leave this website *satisfied*. But since I don't own a crystal ball, I'm dependent on your feedback. So I can **correct mistakes** and **improve this content**.

WOW! I'm so glad I could help you! Do you have any friends or colleagues who would like to be taught this lesson as well? Then send them this content. By the way, do you already know my YouTube channel?

Apparently, you're not too keen on the content. Would you mind telling me what you were missing? Or what you didn't like? I take every feedback to heart and will adapt and improve the content.

What a disaster! Sorry! But don't worry, I can certainly help you. Just send me a message about what you were supposed to find here and what you thought was stupid. I really take your feedback to heart and will revise this content. If you are very disappointed, you are welcome to send me an email to *contact@universaldenker.org* and I will try to help you personally.
