It is known that when rubbing a needle on a magnet, the needle will become magnetized.
If you rub the needle on the north side of the magnet, will it point differently than if you rubbed it on the south side of the magnet? Does it matter what direction you rub the needle?
The Attempt at a Solution
I actually tried doing that manually. The 1st time I tried, I came to the conclusion that side doesn't matter, it's the direction of rubbing that matters. However, I just did it again and I've come to the conclusion that side matters and direction of rubbing doesn't matter.
Thank you for any ideas. Also, I'm new to the forum, so sorry if I broke any rules :(
