Question

Define magnetic declination.


Solution

The magnetic field of earth is supposed to be  a field by a bar magnet and this bar magnet is not along the
 $$Geographic$$ $$meridian$$ of earth whereas it makes an angle to it in a horizontal plane.
In other words the $$\text{Magnetic declination is the angle between geographic north and magnetic north(along the north pole}$$
$$\text{ of a horizontal magnetic compass)}$$
