A bar magnet has no markings to indicate its poles. How would you find out near which end is its north pole located?
Magnets always point towards North-south direction when suspended freely in the air. We can find out a direction by freely suspending a bar magnet. The end magnet of the magnet that point towards North is called North pole. The other pole that point towards the South is called South pole.

Fig. 13.6 shows a magnetic compass. What will happen to the position of its needle if you bring a bar magnet near it? Draw a diagram to show the effect on the needle on bringing the bar magnet near it. Also draw the diagram to show the effect when the other end of the bar magnet is brought near it.NCERT - Science Exemplar
