why dont magnetic field lines intersect each other?

Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
Field lines don't cross each other because a magnetic object placed at a point in the field moves only in 1 direction due to attraction or repulsion. If 2 lines get crossed, it means that the object can move in 2 directions, which can not be the case.

We hope that clarifies your query.
