Question

Choose the correct outcome when a South pole of a magnet is brought near the North pole of a freely suspended magnetic needle.


  1. The magnetic needle will rotate continuously

  2. The magnetic needle will be attracted.

  3. The magnetic needle will be repelled.

  4. No change will happen.


Solution

The correct option is B

The magnetic needle will be attracted.


When a South pole of a magnet is brought near the North pole of a freely suspended magnetic needle, both will attract each other. A magnetic needle is made from a magnet. As such, as both the ends of the magnets are unlike poles, they will attract each other.
