# What do magnetic field lines represent?

When magnetic field lines of permanent magnet were put, they supposed a north monopole magnet, so if you put a monopole north magnet it will follow the magnetic field lines.

But what about the magnetic field of a current flowing in a wire or solenoid, according to what did scientists put these lines?

What happens if you put a monopole in this magnetic field?

• Magnetic monopoles do not exist. – my2cts Aug 29 at 18:19

Using $$a\sim\hat{\phi}/r$$, you can work out how it moves.
• I am just concerned about the direction of the motion, I know that $F=ma$ so the magnet applies a force on the monopole thus it will accelerate, However, What I am concerned about is the direction of the force applied on a north monopole By an electromagnetic field lines, Will it accelerate with the same direction of the field lines ?
