Effect of Breaking a Magnet

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“If a magnet is cut or broken into two or more pieces, each piece becomes a separate magnet, with north and south poles in the same relative positions as in the original magnet...But if the pieces be pressed closely together, their poles dissapear leaving only the two original poles.” -Atkinson 1903
