Magnets The simplest magnet is a somehow magnetized bar of iron. It attracts and holds other pieces of iron. Most of the force a magnet exerts from its ends. A magnet’s ends point north and south . The north-pointing end is called the north pole . The south-pointing end is called the south pole . Like magnet poles repel one another, unlike poles attract one another.

Magnetic Poles Positive and negative charges in neutral matter can be separated from each other. The north and south magnetic poles cannot be separated. Every time we saw a magnet in half, it gets the 2 poles. Magnetic properties have all substances, but to a different extent. Iron is one of the best magnets.
