(A2) Like Poles

Magnets can attract and repel other magnets. Observe the magnet at your table. Each end of a magnet is called a pole. There is a north pole, labeled N, and a south pole, labeled S. North and North (N and N) poles are like poles. South and South (S and S) poles are like poles. Like means same poles. The poles have different forces. If you put the ends of the poles of two magnets close to each other the magnets will either push away (repel) from each other or pull toward (attract) each other. Hands-on Activity 1.
