We’re all familiar with the fact that a magnet has a north pole and a south pole, and that any magnet will exert a force on another magnet.  Over the course of this video, we’ll look in more detail at how two magnets can interact with one another, the difference between permanent and induced magnets, and how a simple compass allows us to find our bearings.
