Why does a compass needle get deflected when brought near a bar magnet?

Asked by Vishal kumar | 2 years ago |  237

Solution :-

The compass needle is a small magnet. When the compass needle is brought close to a bar magnet, the magnetic field lines of the compass needle interact with the magnetic field lines of the bar magnet, which causes the compass needle to deflect.
