Magnet

A simple permanent magnet like a bar magnet has two poles, called 'North' and 'South'. Like poles repel and unlike poles attract. A magnet sets up a magnetic field in three dimensions around itself. Field lines can be drawn to try to represent this magnetic field. The arrows on a field line point from North to South and show the direction a North p...

Magnet

A magnet is a device that produces a magnetic field. Wires carrying electrical current produce magnetic fields which are circular around the wire. When wires are wound into a coil these are called electro-magnets. Another type of magnet is a permanent magnet in which an atoms in the material produce a magnetic field without the need for current. Ma...
