A bar magnet is brought near to a similarly sized bar of unmagnetized iron. The bar magnet induces a magnetic polarity in the iron. Which end of the bar of iron, or , will be the north pole of the induced magnet?
A bar magnet is hung from a thread that is attached to a stand. The magnet can pivot freely.
What will happen if the north pole of a second bar magnet is brought near to the north pole of the bar magnet that is hanging from the thread?
