Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello the first image with the letters going ABCD is picture #1 and then BACD is picture #2 for references.
- Normal magnet. Nothing special about them.
- And we will say they have some type of system where they do not move sideways. Only up and down and have a difference of 5 cm when they are apart.
So here is the scenario. In picture 1 we have 4 magnets A, B, C and D. Magnets A and B are besides each other. Then C and D are completely parallel under A and B. I want to know that if there was a motor type of device that switched position of A and B to B and A (which becomes picture #2). I wanted to know that if after transition from picture 1 to picture 2 if the magnets would now become attracted or repelled if the transition was done.
Objective: I want to know this as polymagnets are expensive and big and was wondering if I compacted regular magnets in a certain way if I could get a similar result. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
