The Earth's Magnetic North Pole, where the magnetic field lines become oriented vertically, moves constantly due to the drift in the Earth's magnetic field. In 2005, the Magnetic North Pole was located at 82.7°N by 114.4°W. To find the magnitudal 2-D land displacement (distance) from the Magnetic North Pole to the True North Pole, multiply the difference between the Magnetic North Pole's latitude (+82.7) and 90 degrees, by 60 nautical miles. (Or: [90-82.7 = 7.3]×60 = 438 nautical miles). That value was correct for 2005, but keep in mind that any latitudinal shift in the position of the Magnetic North Poll indicates a change in distance between the two.

# How far are the north and south poles away from the equator?

In latitude, each pole is 90Â° from the equator. The surface distance from a pole to the equator is 1/4 of the polar circumference of the Earth (40,007.86 kilometers or 24,

a pole away.

# How far is Pittsburgh away from the north pole?

3,383.69 miles Pittsburgh is 40.5 degrees from the equator. That places it (90 - 40.5) or 49.5 degrees from the North Pole. 49.5 degrees is 49.5 / 360 * 40,008 km or 5501

# Is the north magnetic pole a north magnetic pole or a south magnetic pole?

It's important to realise that 'Magnetic North' is the name of a location , and not the magnetic polarity of that location. (Magnetic North is not a fixed location, but

# How far away are chinstrap penguins from the north pole?

# Is North Pole of a magnet magnetic?

Yes, both sides are magnetic, unless you bang it like a thousand times on the ground.

# How far is the magnetic south pole from the geographic north pole?

Half the world away (8000 miles as a neutrino would fly, 12,500 miles as a bird would fly.)

# Do magnets have a north pole and a south pole?

Yes, all magnets have an equal number of north poles and south poles. If they have one north pole they have one south pole, if they have two north poles they have two south po
