Does venus have a north and south pole?
The 'poles' are the ends of the axis of rotation.
So anything that rotates has a pair of them.
The equator is North, as is everything else on earth when you are at the South Pole. From the south Pole, every direction is north. The North pole is the northernmost point on Earth. The South Pole is the southernmost point on Earth. The Equator is a line running circumferentially around the Earth and is midway between the poles. The Equator is south of the North Pole and north of the South Pole. All lines…
suspend the magnet from a string at its center of gravity. The north pole of the magnet will point to the north pole. (The north magnetic pole of the earth is actually a south seeking pole.) Another Answer Use a compass. It's north seeking pole will be attracted towards the magnet's south pole and its south-seeking pole will be attracted towards the magnet's north pole.
It is because where the geographical north is there a bar magnet's south pole is there and where geographical south is there a bar magnet's north pole is there.This is because the earth acts like a magnet.That is, the earth's north pole and a bar magnet's south pole attract each other and the earth's south pole and a bar magnet's north pole attract each other.
The "North pole" on a magnet is more properly the "north-seeking pole", i.e. the pole that tends to point north. The Earth's physical north pole is near its magnetic SOUTH pole (or what would be labeled as the south pole -- really the "south-seeking pole" -- if the Earth were a small laboratory magnet).
The "South Pole" (and the North Pole) is the axis about which the earth rotates. The "South Magnetic Pole" has nothing to do with the South Pole other than they are located within the Antarctic Circle. All magnets have a North and South Pole, the "South Magnetic Pole" and the "North Magnetic Pole" are the opposite ends of the earth's magnetic field.
