Do magnetic fields move from north to south? Magnetic field lines outside of a permanent magnet always run from the north magnetic pole to the south magnetic pole. Therefore, the magnetic field lines of the earth run from the southern geographic hemisphere towards the northern geographic hemisphere.
In which direction does a magnetic field flow? Magnets have a north pole and a south pole. Field line patterns show the direction and shape of a magnetic field. These diagrams are made using a plotting compass . In diagrams of a magnetic field the arrows on the lines show the direction from the north to the south poles.
Where do magnetic field lines start and end? The magnetic field is represented by field lines that start at a magnet’s north pole and end at the south pole.
What is the direction of magnetic field lines of Earth? The direction of the magnetic field is taken to be the direction in which a north pole of the compass needle moves inside it. Therefore it is taken by convention that the field lines emerge from north pole and merge at the south pole.
