How does a compass use magnetism?
A compass would not work without a magnet. Inside the compass is a magnet which moves to line up with the Earth's natural magnetism. The north pole of the magnet is attracted to the south pole of the Earth. As such, the magnet moves to always be lining up in this way. When you use a magnet, you can see this in action as the needle moves around to always point northward and from knowing this, you can tell which way you are facing.

What is the difference between surveyors compass and prismatic compass?
PRISMATIC COMPASS The graduated ring remains stationary as it is attached to magnetic needle. While the compass needle and the eye sight vane can be rotated The graduations are made in such a way that 00 or 3600 is at the south, 1800 at north, 900 at south and 2700 at east Sighting of the object and the taking of reading is done simultaneously Prismatic compass can be used without a tripod SURVEYORS COMPASS The graduated ring being attached to the compass moves with sights. But needle remains stationary when box is rotated The graduations are made as 00 at north & south 900 at east and west. The east and west positions are interchanged in order to read the bearing in quadrantal bearing system Sighting the object is done first. Then the reading is to be taken with naked eye by looking above the needle point Surveyor's compass cannot be used without a tripod
