# Where is magnetic force strongest?

## Where is magnetic force strongest?

north pole
the closer the lines, the stronger the magnetic field (so the magnetic field from a bar magnet is strongest closest to the poles) the lines have arrowheads to show the direction of the force exerted by a magnetic north pole.

## Which magnet is stronger north or south?

The magnetic field generated by any magnet is always strongest at either pole. The magnetic force is equally as strong at both the north and south pole.

Does a magnet go from north to south?

Every magnet has two sides: a north pole and a south pole. We use these names because if you hang a magnet from a thread, the magnet’s north pole points (almost) towards the north direction. Your little, strong magnet lines up with Earth’s magnetic core, so it points north. That’s how a magnetic compass works.

Where is the magnetic field the strongest on earth?

poles
Intensity: The magnetic field also varies in strength over the earth’s surface. It is strongest at the poles and weakest at the equator.

### What part of the magnet is the weakest?

The magnetic field of a bar magnet is strongest at either pole of the magnet. It is equally strong at the north pole when compared with the south pole. The force is weaker in the middle of the magnet and halfway between the pole and the center.

### Is the earth’s magnetic field stronger at the north and South Poles?

By the time the field has reached the surface of earth, it has weakened a lot, but it is still strong enough to keep your compass needles pointed towards one of its poles. All magnets have two POLES: a North Pole and a South Pole. There is another thing that we know about magnets and magnetism.

How much does the North Magnetic Pole move?

A survey in 2007 by a Canadian–French international collaboration determined that the North Magnetic Pole was moving approximately north-northwest at 55 km per year . According to the latest IGRF, the Pole is currently moving in the same direction but at a slightly reduced speed of about 45 km per year.

Which is the North Pole of a DC2 disc magnet?

A red and black D68PC-RB magnet near a plain DC2 disc magnet. Which side is the north pole of the unmarked DC2 disc magnet? The south pole of the plastic coated magnet touches the north pole of the disc magnet. The north pole of the plastic coated magnet touches the south pole of the disc magnet.

## What kind of magnets are on the North Pole?

We recently introduced the two-color, plastic coated D68PC-RB magnets. These cylinder magnets are red on the north pole and black on the south. They’ve become our new favorite pole-identifying magnet. The plastic coating makes it more durable, and won’t tend to scratch another magnet.
