How far away from the North Pole is the Magnetic Pole?
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.

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: [90-82.7â=â7.3] â Ã â 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.
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,…859.73 miles). So the distance from the equator to either pole is approximately 10,001.96 kilometers or 6,214.93 miles. This was the original basis for the definition of the meter.
a pole away.
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… km or 3418 miles from the North Pole.
How far away is the north pole from the US? Take your latitude and multiply by 60 nautical miles. That will give you your distance from the north pool. If you are in the south…ern hemisphere it will give you your distance from the south pool.
The North Pole is at 90 degrees N latitude. The North Magnetic Pole is currently at about 83 degrees N latitudeand 116 degrees W longitude. The North Magnetic Pole is curren…tly located in the Arctic Oceannorth of Canada and is moving north west at an average of 10 km peryear since 1903. In the last couple of years, this movement has speeded up, it isnow moving towards Russia at a rate of 40 miles (60 km) per year.Scientists believe that this is caused by an upwelling of magnetismin the Earth's molten core. They have no idea how long this couldlast, if it will stop or even if it might reverse itself. There is a difference of about 500 kilometres between theGeographic North and Magnetic North poles.
34 to 37 miles (55 and 60 km) per year. Currently, it is poised to leave Canadian territory and enter into Russian territory.
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… is constantly changing relative to True North.) It's very important not to confuse these locations with the magnetic polarities of these locations . The end of a magnet that points to Magnetic North (the location) was originally called the 'north-seeking' pole of a magnet. Over time, we have dropped the term 'seeking', and we now refer to it simply as the magnet's 'north' pole. For the magnet's north pole to be attracted towards Magnetic North, the magnetic polarity of that location must be south -because unlike poles attract. So, the earth behaves like a giant bar magnet, with its south magnetic pole located at Magnetic North, and its north pole located at Magnetic South.
A long way, they are much closer to the South Pole.
The number you want, measured in miles and in a straight line is12,430.
Yes, both sides are magnetic, unless you bang it like a thousand times on the ground.
Half the world away (8000 miles as a neutrino would fly, 12,500 miles as a bird would fly.)
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…les, etc.
long long way to go
Of course it does very from year to year but in the past 10 years It is moved about 40 feet per year
No. The magnetic pole wanders - and even reverses.
