# What are the basic properties associated with a magnet?

__The basic properties associated with a magnet are:__

**1. Attractive Property -**Magnet attracts ferromagnetic materials like iron, cobalt, and nickel. This property proves that the magnetic strength at the ends of the poles is strong.

**2. Law of magnetic poles -**Like poles repel each other, while unlike poles attract each other.

**3. Directive Property -**A freely suspended magnet in mid-air always points in a north-south direction. This property help us to understand which pole of the magnet is north and south.

**4. Pair property -**When a magnet is cut into two pieces, both the pieces will have the North Pole and the South Pole.
