Re: [Phys-L] breaking magnets

If you put together 2 disc magnets, the resulting magnet is stronger than
either individually. This is easy to test if they have a hole in the middle
and you put a magnet opposing them on the top.

If you break a simple dipole bar magnet in two unequal
pieces, how does the strength of the pieces relate to the
strength of the original?
