Hello,

Imagine I have 2 magnets and they are repelling each other. Then I add a piece of iron in between them. Would they be attracted to the piece of iron?
Yes I could just check for myself, but I'm getting my first magnets shipment only next week and I would like to start working on my magnets project.

The force might change, this depends on the geometry of the experiment.
In general, those systems are complicated once you have magnetic objects close to each other (relative to their size).
