    how are lines of induction formed due to 2 horseshoe magnets that are placed side by side but no contact? Are there websites that would show me about it?

    We need a diagram of some sort. How exactly are the magnets placed with respect to eachother?

    Sirus, the two horseshoe magnets are placed close to each other without contact such that (1) like poles are aside and (2) when unlike poles are aside...

    Why don't you see yourself? Just place a sheet of paper above the magnets and sprinkle iron filing around the magnets onto the paper. :smile:

    Hello.. I would suggest to try it somewhere... for me, I'll go to the laboratory and find it out. I think it will be fun because you're using iron fillings..
