Since compass needle is a small bar magnet , how can it be said that it doesn't have magnetic field near it?
Asked by P S Lakshmi | 19th Aug, 2014, 08:07: PM
A magnetic needle is a bar magnet, and hence, it has a magnetic field around it.
The North Pole of the needle is the "North seeking pole" which tends to rotate towards the North of the Earth.
Similarly, the South Pole of the needle is the "South seeking pole" which tends to rotate towards the South of the Earth.
