A bar magnet falls under the influence of gravity along the axis of a long copper tube. If air resistance is negligible, will there be a force to oppose the descent of the magnet? If so, will the magnet reach a terminal velocity?

The magnetic field of the magnet induces a current in the copper tube. This current moves in the opposite direction of the magnetic field of the magnet. So, the answer is yes there will be a force to oppose the descent of the magnet.
Also, the answer is yes, the magnet reaches a terminal velocity where the induced current induces a magnetic field in the opposite direction which decreases the speed of the magnet.

Yes

Gauss's Law for magnetism is
B = 0
This allows us to write the magentic field B as the curl of another field the magnetic vector potential, A.
B = × A
This adhers to ( × A ) = 0
However, if a monopole does exist then we have
B = ρ m
Where ρ m is some magnetic charge density however with a magentic vector potential this violates the equation, ( × A ) 0
Does that mean if magnetic monopoles does exist, that the magnetic field can no longer be defined by a magnetic vector potential? In which case how was dirac able to still define the magnetic field by a magnetic vector potentials?

Two charged bodies create a superposition of electrostatic fields at a point and there is no evidence of fields interference. Now, if we put two current circuits around the charged bodies then we create also magnetic fields and as a consequence two electromagnetic fields. If the electrostatic field and the magnetic field from the two positions don't interfere as waves when independently acting will their combination in the form of electromagnetic field show interference properties when combined?

Magnetic force and work
If the magnetic force does no work on a particle with electric charge, then: How can you influence the motion of the particle? Is there perhaps another example of the work force but do not have a significant effect on the motion of the particle?
