Why do the north pole of the magnet is more powerful than the south pole of the magnet? 
 
why do the suspended  magnet always align in the north-south direction?

Expert Answer:

The North Pole of a magnet is not stronger than the South Pole. Both the poles have equal strength.
This strength is given as the pole strength (m) of a pole of magnet.
 
Earth is a giant magnet with its South Pole aligned towards the geographic North and North Pole aligned towards the geographic South.
Hence, when a magnet is suspended its North Pole gets attracted towards the South (or geographic North)
and its South Pole gets attracted towards the North (or geographic South).
