Is a compass supposed to be on the left side of a map?
Actually there is no difference in which side do you keep your compass as long it is going to show the north direction in any other side of the map. Usually there is a small print in the maps (left side/right side depends of the print) which shows the direction of north in the certain map position. So What you have to do is to use compass to get the right direction.
Asked in Geometry
Can a compass construct circles?
The only way a compass can be used to create a circle is if you draw round it, because a compass is actually a navigational instrument which shows direction. If you're out in the woods, for example, you use a compass to show you which direction you need to head in. A pair of compasses can be used to construct, or draw, a circle of any size, up to the maximum reach of the "arms".

What can plotting compass be used to detect?
A plotting compass is used to detect which direction the North Pole is located. You can stand in any position and it will always point north. +++ That's a navigation compass. A plotting compass will indeed point to the Earth's Magnetic North Pole (not the axis pole), if not influenced by any other magnet; but its purpose is in plotting the magnetic field around a magnet.
Asked in South Pole
Do you point up for south and at your feet for north at the South Pole?
You cannot go further south when you are at the South Pole, so there is nowhere you can point that is south. Pointing up is off the planet, so it is not in any direction on a compass, just like at any place on Earth. Directions on a compass only apply to the surface of Earth. Point in any direction around you and you are pointing north.

How can the direction of the magnetic field lines at a place be determined?
Get a magnet that's free to turn in any direction ... a boy-scout compass will do nicely. Place it in the magnetic field. It rotates to point in the direction of the field 'lines' at that location. (I forget whether it's the north or south pole of the compass that points in the direction of the magnetic field, or opposite to it.) If you like, move your detector slowly, always following the direction in which it points, and you'll trace out a complete 'line' of the magnetic field.
What is the correct way to use a pocket compas?
Pocket compasses are great. First thing to do is to make sure that you are not holding the compass near a metal belt buckle or any other metal object. Metal belt buckles have caused many people to wander off in the wrong direction. The metal will effect the needle on the compass. Hold the compass in front of you. Line up the north arrow and the "N" on the compass card. That is the part that has all the compass points on it. N, S, E, W. Then turn your body until the direction that you need to travel on the compass is in front of you while keeping the North arrow lined up with the "N" on the compass card. Then look in the direction that the compass directs you and pick an object in the distance that lines up with your direction of travel. You may now put the compass away and travel to that point or object. Then re-do the steps over and pick out a new object in the distance. This will keep you going in a straight line. Just looking at the compass all the time will cause you to walk a lot farther than you need to and you may even miss where you want to go.
Asked in Science
A compass needle will always align itself with what?
A compass needle, or any magnet free to turn, will always align itself with the sum of all the magnetic fields in the place where it's located. If there are no stronger sources of magnetic field in the area, then it'll align itelf with the Earth's magnetic field, with its ends pointing toward the Earth's magnetic poles. That direction is almost always different from the direction toward the Earth's geographic poles; the size and direction of the difference depends on the location of the compass.

Asked in Astronomy, Geophysics
How can you prove that the earth has a magnetic field?
You can show that the Earth has a magnetic field by looking at a magnetic compass. The north end of the compass points to the north magnetic pole, and does so everywhere on Earth. It does this by aligning itself to the Earth's magnetic field. If there weren't a magnetic field, then a compass needle would not point to any consistent direction.

What will happen when you put a small compass in a magnetic field?
A compass is a small magnet. The needle has a "North" end and a "South" end. The needle responds to a magnetic field by rotating so that the North end of the magnet points towards the South direction of the magnetic field and vice versa. A stationary magnetic field from any source extends in a region around that source and has a strength and a direction at every point in space. The direction can be determined by the direction of the compass needle. When the magnetic field influencing the compass is due to a permanent magnet, by moving the compass around and following the direction in which it points, one can follow the direction of the field to the North and South poles of the permanent magnet. The Earth has its own magnetic field. With no other influences, the North end of a compass will point to the North magnetic pole of the Earth and the South end to the South magnetic pole. The North and South magnetic poles of the Earth are near, but not exactly located at the North an South geographic poles which are determined by the axis of rotation of the Earth. (Yes, that means that the magnet which is inside the Earth has its South magnetic end pointing up in the North geographic direction.)
