Unformatted text preview: behave. I was able to prove that the field is inversely proportional to the square distance by graphing a magnetic force vs. distance graph and analyzing that the best fit was an inverse square fit. The reason a compass is useful to draw a magnetic field is because magnets tend to line themselves with magnetic field lines. This exercise helped me understand better the shape, strength, and direction of a magnetic field; as well as learning that the Earth is a huge magnet itself. Drawing the magnetic field also proved the fact that opposite poles attract each other, while like poles repel each other....
