List four properties of magnetic field lines.



Properties of magnetic field lines are:

  • Field lines arise from the North pole and end into the South pole of the magnet.  
  • Field lines are closed curves .  
  • Field lines are closer in stronger magnetic fields.  
  • Field lines never intersect each other as for two lines to intersect, there must be two directions of magnetic field  at a point, which is not possible.  
  • Direction of field lines inside a magnet is from South to North.  
  • The relative strength of the magnetic field is shown by the degree of closeness of field lines.
