  Magnetic monopole is the one of the most interesting concepts/objects in physics. According to Maxwell equations it can not exist by ∇.B = 0 equation. At the same time according to Glashow Salam Weinberg electroweak theory it must exist, and Dirac states its existence for the mathematical elegance of Maxwell equations, and to explain the charge quantization it is used. Until now many theoretical solutions were studied and derived. At 1904 Joseph John Thomson studied a theoretical solution on a physical system consisting of a charge q and a magnetic monopole g. Here the physical and mathematical validity of this solution will be discussed.
