Paragraph on “What are the poles of magnet?” complete paragraph for Class 9, Class 10, Class 11 and Class 12

What are the poles of magnet?

Two magnets are illustrated above. The one on the left is known as a horseshoe magnet and the one on the right is known as a bar magnet. If some small pieces of iron are put near either of these magnets most of them will cluster around the ends  of the magnet. This means that the magnetic effect is strongest at the ends. These are known as the poles of the magnet.

If you suspend a bar magnet by tying a thin piece of thread around its centre you will find that it always points in the same direction. One end will always point north. This is known as north pole of the magnet. The other end  points towards the south and is known as the south pole of the magnet.

The poles of mangers have other strange properties. If you put the north pole of a magnet near the south pole of another magnet they will pull or attract each other. However, if you put the north poles of two magnets close together they will push away or repel each other. A south pole will attract a north pole but repel a south pole.
