Poles of a bar magnet:

There are two poles found in every bar magnet.  The poles of a bar magnet are located at their ends.

1. North pole

2. South pole

Let us know something more about the poles of a bar magnet:

When a bar magnet is suspended freely, then one end of the bar magnet will face the north direction and the other end will face the south direction. Due to the nature of magnetic poles, they are said to be the north and south poles of a magnet.

1. North pole

The pole or end of a freely suspended bar magnet facing the north direction is said to be the north pole of the bar magnet.

2. South pole

The pole or end of a freely suspended bar magnet facing the south direction is said to be the south pole of the magnet.

The figure below shows the poles or ends of a bar magnet.
