What do road crews use at the North Pole?
How can you know that which is north pole or which is south pole in a magnet?
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.

How thick is the ice at the north pole that the use seawolf punched through?
Asked in North Pole, Magnetism
Is the north pole a natural magnet?
Yes, if you use a compass you you will see it points towards the north pole. Although the north pole is called the North pole, scientifically it is actually the south pole. This is because the Earth\'s magnetic field makes a compass point to the scientific south pole, geographically known as the North Pole

How do you know which is the North face of the magnet?
Asked in Antarctica, North Pole, South Pole
The south pole is known as the antarctica what is the north pole known as?
In relation to the question asked, (south pole = antarctic) the answer is the arctic. The north pole is located in the Arctic region, specifically the Arctic Ocean. When people use the term "The North Pole", they may mean Magnetic North or they may mean the Geographic North Pole/Terrestial North Pole. The latter two terms are the point in the northern hemisphere where the earth's axis meets the earth's surface. There is no land mass at the North Pole. It is currently covered by ice caps, which shift. Therefore there is no permanent marker of the North Pole.

Why is it impossible to give the longitude of the north pole?
Asked in North Pole, South Pole
Why are the poles called the north and south pole?
The north and south pole are the earth's equivalent of a bar magnet, with a north and south pole. If you hold a bar magnet up, tied to a piece of string, the north pole of the bar magnet will face the earth's north pole. The earth has an inner magnet. Since the directions, north and south, pre-date the use of a magnetic compass, the compass needle was labeled according to which direction it pointed. The magnetic pole in the north is, in reality, a south magnetic pole since the north pole of a magnet is attracted to it. Try not to let that keep you awake tonight.

How do you identify the north and south pole of a magnet?
Asked in Magnetism
If you have an unmarked bar magnet how can you find out which end is the north pole?
Asked in South Pole
How do you identify north and south pole of a magnet?
To identify the north pole of a magnet, make a compass out of it by hanging it on a string or floating it on water. The pole that faces geographic north is the north pole. Once you have a magnets poles labelled, you can use it to identify orientation and poles on another magnet since like poles repel and opposite poles attract. Alternative Answer Easier still, use a compass! A compass always points to the south magnetic pole of a magnet.
