The Floating Magnet

"A" particularly enjoys science experiments and quite often he selects an experiment from one of our Science books.  Today he wanted to explore with magnetism.

He used two large magnets, one of which is a circular magnet with a hole in the center.  






To demonstrate the polarity of the magnets he placed the solid, round magnet at the bottom and used a glue stick as a center to prevent the other magnet from flipping over.  He lowered the circular magnet over the glue stick towards the solid magnet. 

 

The magnet floated above the round magnet on the bottom.
