Gokul, I don't have a clue of who you are other than the fact that I have immense respect and appreciation for your inputs to PF. I've learned a lot from you, and am apparently still doing so in this thread. Because of your expertise and mature approach to everything, I had assumed that you were somewhere in my age range. This is apparently wrong. When I was in school a couple of years ago :uhh: , we were taught it as I posted. It would seem that the convention has changed, so I apologize for the bad posts. And thank you for translating, because I was honestly having some trouble following part of the thread.Gokul43201 said:Danger, I was taught that the NP of a magnet points to the Magnetic South Pole, which is very close to the Geographic North Pole
