Question and answer
the difërence between the earths magnetic north and the earths geographic north
The difference between Magnetic North and Geographic North is important if you are using a compass to navigate. [ For us, the difference would throw us off only 1.5 degrees, which is only significant if you are doing precise orienteering. It is important to note that what people call the "Magnetic North on the Earth" is really the South pole of the earth's magnet, since the "North-seeking Pole" of a lodestone or small magnet (what we call "the North Pole") is attracted to it (and un-like poles attract). You could also think of the earth's Magnetic North pole as "The place on earth to
which the North Pole of magnets point." Think about this! It may take you re-reading these sentences several times! It might be helpful to go back to the description of the lodestone compass. ]
