Description

Magnetic field: The area around a magnet where a magnetic force is experienced is called the magnetic field. It is a quantity that has both direction and magnitude.

Magnetic field and field lines: The influence of force surrounding a magnet is called the magnetic field. In the magnetic field, the force exerted by a magnet can be detected using a compass or any other magnet.
Magnetic field lines represent the magnetic field.

The imaginary lines of magnetic field around a magnet are called field lines or field lines of magnets. When iron fillings are allowed to settle around a bar magnet, they get arranged in a pattern that mimics the magnetic field lines. The field line of a magnet can also be detected using a compass. The magnetic field is a vector quantity, i.e. it has both direction and magnitude.

The direction of the field line: Outside the magnet, the direction of the magnetic field line is taken from the North Pole to the South Pole. Inside the magnet, the direction of the magnetic field line is taken from the South pole to the North pole.

Strength of magnetic field: The closeness of field lines shows the relative strength of magnetic field, i.e. closer lines show a stronger magnetic field and vice– – versa. Crowded field lines near the poles of the magnet show more strength.
