There are plenty of references discussing the force on a current-carrying wire
in a magnetic field but I cannot find how to calculate the forces involved when
two opposing fields (eg two north poles) are brought into close proximity.
Are the (H) fields added vectorially to get a resultant field? How is this
resultant field related to the forces experienced by the magnets?
