Question

If a bar magnet is cut lengthwise into two parts, how many numbers of poles will be formed?

Solution

Each magnet has a tiny north and south pole. If you cut one in half, the newly cut faces will become the new north or south poles of the smaller pieces. Hence, the total number of poles will be four.
