Two like charges repel while two opposite charges attract- the same can be said about
poles. Two opposite poles will attract whereas two similar poles will repel

When you treat light as a particle, we call it a photon- a photon is thus a light particle that is
very small and travels at the speed of light (3 x 10 8 m/s)
