What is the meaning of north pole and south pole on a magnet?
A magnet produces a magnetic field which hast two ends. If you have two magnets and make a mark on the end of one of them, then if you hold that magnet down and take the other magnet, then one end of the other magnet will be attracted to the marked end of the held magnet while the other end will be repelled. If you call the marked end of the held magnet N then the end of the other magnet which is repelled should also be marked N as in magnetism like ends repel one another and opposite ends attract. That is the meaning of the N and S pole of on a magnet.
