Iron Filings get Attracted More at the Ends of the Magnet
Attraction will be maximum at the free ends of the magnet. The free ends of a magnet where the attraction is maximum are called the poles of a magnet. Every magnet has two poles—north pole and south pole.

Magnetic Poles Always Occur in Pairs

It is not possible to separate the two poles of a magnet. Whenever a bar magnet is broken into two pieces, each piece is a complete bar magnet in itself having an independent north and south pole. This can be checked by suspending each piece freely. It is found that they exhibit directive property.
