Expert Answer:

Magnetic field lines describe the structure of the magnetic field in space around the magnet.

It's a way to visualize the magnetic field.


1/ The lines start from North pole and end on south pole. The lines always make a complete loop.

2/ The lines never cross over each other.

3/ The magnetic force at a point is given by the tangent to the field line at that point.
