Both Poles of Magnet are Equally Strong or not

# Our Objective

To find out whether both the poles of a magnet are equally strong and whether all magnets are equally strong.

# The Theory

## Magnet

A magnet is a material or object that produces magnetic field. A Magnetic field is responsible for attraction. The materials which get attracted towards a magnet are magnetic such as iron, nickel or cobalt. The materials which are not attracted towards a magnet are non-magnetic. It has two magnetic poles north and south.

## Magnetic Poles

There are two magnetic poles that divide a magnet into two halves. These are the two ends of magnet. These ends are called magnetic north pole and magnetic south pole.

### North pole

From the North pole, magnetic field lines project outside the magnet and also it attracts the South pole of another magnet.

### South pole

Magnetic field lines end at the South pole outside the magnet and it attracts the North pole of another magnet.

## Law of Attraction of Magnet

The Law of attraction of magnets states that when a south pole of a magnet is brought close to the north pole of another magnet, they attract each other.

## Law of Repulsion of Magnet

The Law of repulsion of magnets states that when a north pole of a magnet is brought close to the north pole of another magnet, or when a south pole of magnet is brought closer to the south pole of another magnet, they will repel from each other.

## Uses of Magnetic Poles

• By Analyzing the magnetic poles can get to know whether the material is magnetic or not.
• It helps to find the geographic direction.

# Learning Outcomes

• Students can understand the concept of magnetism.
• Student can understand the magnetic poles and their types.
• Students can learn on the uses of magnetic poles.
