The direction of any magnetic field is taken to be in the direction that a compass points. Explain why this means that magnetic field lines must leave from the north pole of a permanent bar magnet and enter its south pole.

The Earth calibrated compass points toward the south pole and since that is the orientation of the magnetic field that means the magnetic filed must go in the south pole. The Earth calibrated compass points away of the north pole and since that is the orientation of the magnetic field that means the magnetic filed must go out of the north pole.

A bar magnet with magnetic dipole moment 0.54 A m 2 lies on the negative x axis. A compass is located at the origin. Magnetic north is in the negative z direction. Between the bar magnet and the compass is a coil of wire of radius 3.5 cm, connected to batteries not shown. The distance from the center of the coil to the center of the compass is 9.7 cm. The distance from the center of the bar magnet to the center of the compass is 22.5 cm. A steady current of 0.96 A runs through the coil. Conventional current runs clockwise in the coil when viewed from the location of the compass. Despite the presence of the coil and the bar magnet, the compass points north. (a) Which end of the bar magnet is closer to the compass
