    north poles repel north poles south poles repel south poles north poles attract south poles south poles attract north poles the force of attraction or repulsion varies inversely with the distance squared the strength of a magnet varies at different locations on the magnet magnets are strongest at their poles magnets strongly attract steel, iron, nickel, cobalt, gadolinium magnets slightly attract liquid oxygen and other materials magnets slightly repel water, carbon and boron

    Magic? .... I doubt it. Attraction and repulsion are based on charges or poles generally. In other cases like gravitational forces it is not even charge but masses. It is the affinity of molecules towards some other kind of molecules which result in such forces. In the case of magnets, the opposite charges setup a magnetic field between them within which the force can be experienced the most.

    Magnets are objects which align fields of attractive and repulsive force. Like the other forces, magnetic force acts on objects. However, unlike gravitational force, magnetic force will only work on objects with a tendency to align with the magnetic fields. Many objects can give off magnetic fields. They can be permanent magnets or they can be temporary magnets, as in electro-magnets. Two objects producing magnet fields will try to align with each other. Which is why you will find magnets attracting each other in certain alignment and repelling each other (attempting to rotate) in other configurations. The key component of how magnets work is found in these fields, how they align objects and how they align when around other magnets.

    in electricity the charges are responsible for exerting force ,and every thing.in magnetisem the moving charges create magnetic field and this magnetic field exerts forc on the other moving charges.it's so complicated .if u want i can express more

    most answers left out the material is made of "domains" and these "domains" must align to create a magnetic field. once they align on the nuclear level then the magnetic field of the individual domains compounds giving a measureable field.
