# Answer to Question #16448 in Electromagnetism for apoorv

Question #16448
I have experienced that if we break a bar magnet into two pieces and try to bring those broken faces together it gets repelled each other. Why is it so?

consider a bar magnet,

NN&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;SS
NN for north pole and SS for south pole.

I broke that into two pieces, So one piece would be

NN&minus;&minus;SS&prime; and another piece would be &prime;NN&minus;&minus;SS .( &prime; indicates the broken part).

Now if I bring those two together, SS&prime; of first should attract the &prime;NN of the other. But in the reality it is getting repelled.

or is there any pole exchange occuring?
NN&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;&minus;SS

gives either
NN&minus;&minus;&minus;SS&prime;
and
&prime;SS&minus;&minus;&minus;NN
OR
SS&minus;&minus;&minus;NN&prime;
and
NN&prime;&minus;&minus;&minus;SS
so it will repel each other.

Please explain why is this happening?

Edit: The cut has been made perpendicular to the polar axis.
