A relation between the distance from the surface of a magnet and the number of cells required for a numerical calculation in order to secure the error below a certain threshold is derived. We also developed a method to obtain the magnetization at each part of the magnet from the experimentally measured magnetic field. This method is applied to three magnets with distinct patterns on magnetic-field-viewing film. Each magnet showed a unique pattern of magnetization. We found that the magnet that shows symmetric magnetization on the magnetic-field-viewing film is not uniformly magnetized. This method can be useful comparing the magnetization between magnets that yield typical magnetic field and those that yield atypical magnetic field.
