    I have some questions on the physics around Electrons and magnets, so anyone willing to explain this would be much appreciated.

    Question 1

    Can the north pole of a bar magnet attract electrons from a chemical solution?

    Question 2

    If A is yes, will the south pole of a bar magnet repel electrons?

    Question 3

    Does the magnetic field of a bar magnet cease to exist when next to an opposite, ie. magnets in a line connecting north to south then to north ect?


    Regards

    1. No. A moving electron will experience a force when traveling through a magnetic field. This is callled the Lortentz force. The magnet does not exert a force on a static charge.

    2. Not applicable.
    3. No. Two magnets stuck together end to end oriented in the same direction will reinforce each other's magnetic field.
