What would be direction of a compass needle when placed exactly at geomagnetic north pole?
Asked by Vishakh Thrivikraman | 6th Aug, 2012, 10:30: PM
The needle will point downwards making an angle with the vertical (if compass is kept in vertical plane).
It does so because the magnetic north pole and geographic north pole dont coincide
