Magnets and Magnetic Forces A model, similar to electrostatics: Each magnet has two poles at its ends. N S Magnetic poles come in two types, “S” and “N”. Due to the Earth’s magnetism, a magnet will tend to rotate until the “N” end points North. Forces between magnets are due to the forces between each pair of poles, similar to the electrostatic forces between point charges. N N S S S N like poles repel N N unlike poles attract The force gets smaller as distance increases.
