To judge the quality of a magnet, we must talk about the force exerted by the magnet on a charged particle. The force vector field tells us the magnitude and direction of a force on a small test particle at any point. Therefore, the magnetic field is an image that we use to describe and visualize how the magnetic force is distributed around and within a magnetic object.
Unfortunately, we cannot see the magnetic field with the naked eye.
A magnetic field measurement system visualizes the field for us and enables analysis of the magnetic field distributions to test the magnet quality.
