  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. This was the answer 3 weeks ago on Yahoo to the very same question:

    What is the net magnetic force on a compass needle? By what mechanism does a compass needle align w/ a magnetic field? No net force, needle stops moving, so no force on it.
