Introduction

Magnets have north and south poles. Do you think that the poles of differently shaped magnets are in different places? In this activity, you will use the Magnetic Field Sensor to find the poles of various magnets, make diagrams of them, and then see how the poles of one magnet make it behave with the poles of another magnet.

Objectives

In this activity, you will

  • Make observations about the poles of differently shaped magnets.
  • Diagram the position of the poles of differently shaped magnets.
  • Draw conclusions about the poles of magnets
