We will consider that in this physical situation, magnets are surrounded by a magnetic field that exerts a force on magnetic materials. Also, we know that magnets have north and south poles and the like magnetic poles repel each other. Also, the unlike magnetic poles, attract each other.
So, if the bar magnet is broken in half, then we will have two separate magnets that each magnet has north and south poles. Also, the strength of the magnetic field of each generated magnets will decrease to half its original value before the bar magnet is broken.
So, the two generated magnets will follow the rules that we mentioned in the first cell. the like magnetic poles repel each other. Also, the unlikemagnetic poles, attract each other.

If a bar magnet is broken in half then each broken piece will become an individual magnet bar with their own North and South poles. The only difference now is that the strength of the poles and the magnetic moment of each piece will be half as much as of the original magnetic bar.

If an aluminum sheet is held between the poles of a large bar magnet, it requires some force to pull it out of the magnetic field even though the sheet is not ferromagnetic and does not touch the pole faces.
Explain.

A bar magnet is suspended so it is free to rotate. When you hold a second bar magnet near the suspended magnet, the suspended magnet begins to rotate. What do you have to do to keep the suspended magnet rotating?

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

A bar magnet is initially far trom a circular loop or wire. Ihe magnet is moved at constant speed along the axis of the loop. It moves toward the loop, proceeds to pass through it, and then continues until it is far away on the right side of the loop. Sketch a qualitative graph of the current in the loop as a function of the position of the bar magnet Take the current to be positive when it is counterclockwise.
