Academic career. In Hansteen began the inquiries in terrestrial magnetism with which his name is especially associated. His first scientific publication was printed in Journal de Physique, following a contest on magnetic axes created in by the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and he was given a research scholarship by the recently established (in ) Royal Frederick Alma mater: University of Copenhagen.

The south magnetic pole of the Earth is currently in the Indian Ocean near Antarctica. A compass would point straight up at this location making it a north pole. The magnetic axis of the Earth differs from its rotational axis by about 10°. The magnetic field strength on the surface of the Earth .

The geographic North Pole of Earth and Earth's magnetic north pole are at the same location. c. The north needle of a compass always points to the geographic North Pole of Earth. d. The geographic South Pole of Earth and Earth's magnetic north pole are relatively close to each other.

According to historical data and current scientific theory, the statement that is NOT true concerning Earth's magnetic field is that the field.. - reverses every , years - is weakened by 7% every . Thus magnetism at rst referred to the long-range interaction between ferromagnetic bodies. Indeed, the present course will mainly address magnetic order in solids, of which ferromagnetism is the most straight-forward case. This begs the question of what it is that is ordering in a ferromagnet. Oersted () found that a compass needle is deFile Size: KB.
