If you cut a magnet in half does each half become a magnet. Give a clear explanation to your answer.

  • Physics -

    Yes. A permanent magnet's properties are determined by how the atoms are aligned inside. That does not change by cutting the magnet.

  • Physics -

    Yes, each half will become a magnet because the domains will just reinforce each other and create new north - south poles.
