Talking what happens when a magnet is cut diagonally

hi there,
we all know that a magnet has a north pole and a south pole. so what would happen if a bar magnet was to be cut diagonally??

Personally I've never tried it ... but I would hazard a guess -- that nothing will change.

First of all, I'm assuming you're talking about a long rectangular shaped magnet with different poles at the thin ends.

If you cut a magnet, why should the magnetization at the poles change at all? Say, you cut the shape such that the north pole remains large and the south pole becomes a triangular point (looking from above). I would guess that the south pole becomes weaker (since it's total volume & surface area are reduced?)

I think that the magnets might spin, but thats just a guess. I have little knowledge of magnets and there affects on the things around them. Could you briefly explain?

Well mr.sciencefreak...
I can tell you that a magnet always has a north pole and a south pole...
no matter wich size or wich shape it is!

you're right but if a magnet were cut diagonally, one end would taper while the other will be broad (considering only one cut piece) Thus one pole will have to be weaker i guess.

P.S. I'm a ms.

Talking

i agree with scienceiscool it gets weaker but stay the same... BroadwayBaby nice suggestion but a magnet mainly spins when the poles are the same it repells...
