Homework Help: physcial science

Posted by dave on Monday, June 25, 2007 at 12:55am.

Why is a nail attracted to either pole of a magnet, but another magnet is attracted to only one of the poles?

Did you post this twice? Please review my answer posted yesterday

It looks like my answer to this same question by "jan" did not get posted. It was related to the fact that the nail is ferromagnetic, and will align its atoms magnetically in the same direction as the external magnetic field
