Correct me if I'm wrong about anything. I've browsed here many times, but this is my first post. I was thinking about Prince Rupert's Drop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Rupert's_Drop) and I wondered about spherical magnets. Prince Rupert's Drop is able to withstand high magnitudes of force because the insides cooling contracts pulling the glass molecules closer together. My chem teacher, the science department chair, attributed magnetic properties by the arrangement layers in magnets. If layers were spherically arranged (like Earth's layers), would the spherical magnetic be magnetic? Would the core of the magnet, I'll call it South, cancel out the North pole or would the entire North pole be extra strong? To clarify, a South pole of any magnet would attract to any point on this magnet's surface. Thank you!
