Either of two points where the lines of force of the earth's magnetic field are vertical.
One of the two ends of a magnet where the magnetic field is strongest.
Subject: Geology Earth has a magnetic field generated by the magnetism ofx the core. The magnetic field is situated along magnetic lines of force that are oriented north-south. A small magnet, if allowed to swing freely, will always line up parallel to the magnetic field and point to the magnetic north pole.

One of the two diametrically opposite points of a spherical body, or the end points of a bar magnet, where the flux of the magnetic lines of force is maximum.
A location in a magnetic field where lines of force all converge.
One of the places where the magnetic field of a planet comes out of the planet (the South Magnetic Pole), or goes into it (the North Magnetic Pole). Also, on a permanent magnet, or an electromagnet, one of the 'ends' of the magnet.
A magnetic pole of a magnet is point near the end of the magnet, at which the magnetic force seems concentrated.
a magnet with a North or South seeking magnetic field
an end point of a magnet
( Geomagnetic pole ) position on the surface of the Earth where the magnetic field vector ( inclination) is vertical. back
An area where the lines of flux are concentrated. Magnetic Line of Force - An imaginary line in a magnetic field, which, at every point, has the direction of the magnetic flux at that point.
Either of the two regions in a magnetic field at which the field is most intense. The two regions have opposing polarities, which we label north and south, after the two magnetic poles on Earth.
Either of two limited regions in a magnet at which the magnet's field is most intense.
One of two points on a magnet (or the Earth) at which the greatest density of lines of force emerge. A compass needle aligns itself along the local lines of force on the Earth and points more or less toward the magnetic poles of the Earth.
1. Either of the two nonstationary areas in the north and south polar regions of the earth to which a magnetic compass needle will point 2. Either of the poles of a magnet.
either of the two points on the earth's surface at which magnetic meridians converge; the horizontal component of the magnetic field of the earth becomes zero at this point; also called the dip pole.
