physics in hiking


anna

869 views

when hiking it is important to know what direction you are headed in. this sometimes can require a compass. a compass is a magnet that is aligned with the earths magnetic poles. the north direction of the earth is actually the south pole of its magnet. this means that the north pole of a compass will point north because it will be attracted to the south pole of the earths magnet. Having a compass always point north can help you if you get lost.
