What are the Forces between Magnetic Poles?
The forces between
and South magnetic poles
are similar to the forces between electrostatic charges.
towards each other),
Like poles repel (push away from each other).
This means that two North poles will repel each other
and two South poles will repel each other.
One North pole and one South pole will attract each other.
The further apart the poles are,
the weaker are the forces between them.
You need to know the shape of the magnetic
a bar magnet, poles which attract and poles which repel.
Notice that the lines of magnetic
between the poles are parallel.
