A magnet always has two poles.
- A magnet always has two poles: north pole and South Pole.
- Like magnetic poles repel each other and unlike magnetic poles attract each other
- We know that pole is the point where the strength of the magnet is maximum. So more and more iron particles will be attracted to poles of a magnet when we bring a magnet near the iron particles. We will observe the crowdness of particles at the ends of magnet. This indicates the presence of two poles in a magnet. Hence, poles are present in a magnet in pair. If a magnet is divided into two parts, each part also possesses a pair of poles.
