1. The problem statement, all given/known data A bar magnet is positioned at the mouth of a solenoid. The current indicated in the solenoid is then turned on. (Assume the solenoid is a lot bigger than the bar magnet.) Gravity and friction can be ignored. Describe what would happen, and why. For a visual representation: http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/3614/assignmentq.png [Broken] 2. The attempt at a solution To try and solve it I drew the above diagram. Since the north pole of the bar magnet is facing the south pole of the solenoid I suppose they would attract? But I feel like there's something else that would happen (ex. something more drastic since the solenoid is much more massive). Any help/explanations will be greatly appreciated!
