Two iron bars attract each other no matter which ends are placed close together. Are both magnets? Explain.
Step 1 of 1
No, because every magnet has two poles, and if you would have two magnets close together, they would be repelled on the side of like poles. So, only one of them is a magnet and the other is just a piece of iron.
