# Simple Conceptual True/False Questions About Magnetism

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1). Magnetic Field lines begin and end at magnetic charges. (True or False)
2). Magnetic field lines are "lines of force" for charged particles. (For example, a charge will follow the magnetic field lines.)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I believe that they are both false. In #1, magnetic field lines can go through the middle of a bar magnet, so I believe it is false.

For #2, I have heard them called "lines of force" before, but they do not follow the magnetic field lines because they don't point in the direction of the charge.

Any confirmation or denial would be great.

Magnetic lines always close on themselves. No such thing as a 'magnetic charge'. So yeah, I think 'false' for #1.

Correct on #2.
