Sample Problem

The diagram below shows a magnet, with locations A, B, C, and D labeled around it.

Description: magnet

Which location on the magnet would have the strongest attraction to the south pole of another magnet like this one?

Solution

Location D is closest to this magnet’s north pole; since opposite poles attract, the north pole of this magnet would be most strongly attracted to the south pole of another such magnet.
