Hi, I understand that magnetic flux is like electric current and will take the path of least resistance, but I really don't like the current analogy and here's one question where it doesn't help: Say you've got a piece of Ferro Iron where the magnetic moments are not lined up, you put a magnetic dipole on the ferro Iron and the flux will choose to flow through that on it's path more than it will the air next to the ferro iron. But if the Iron is magnetised to that the flux will still want to flow through the iron (the poles aren't opposing, its like ones north and ones south and they're attracted) will more flux flow through the Iron than before? Or would it be the same amount of flux as before, because while the iron's under the influence of the magnet the dipoles all just flip temporarily to go with it? I would imagine that if you flipped the magnetised Iron over (so it IS opposing), it would be less flux through it, as some of the dipoles are opposing, and the flux wouldn't really like that as much, but I may be wrong. Any thoughts?
