How does a magnetic compass function? what is the importance of the device?


Formula for speed = distance/time

200m = distance
20s = time

A magnetic compass tells the polarity of a certain object that has a magnetic property. Like for example, an unmarked iron nail, by placing the magnetic compass on one end of the iron nail, you can determine if that is the North or the south. If the compass needle points North then the polarity of the nail's end is South. Take note that North attracts to South. South attracts to North
