B Can magnets be used to keep something at a certain distance?

  1. Jul 17, 2016 #1
    I've done some research on Google but have found no of relevant information.

    I basically want to create a rope effect using magnetism. The objects will ideally maintain a certain distance from one another - the distance can vary to some degree - but must not be attracted too closely nor repelled to too far a distance.

    Thanks for any information. :)

    With nothing but the force supplied by magnets, this is not possible. Can you see why?
