This may be a dumb question, but here it goes. How do you determine the north and south poles of a magnet?

No question is too stupid to ask in my opinion. The saying "opposites attract" always helps me with this question. If the magnets stick together, then you've got a north and a south pole facing each other. If they repel, then you have two norths or two souths.

Hope that helps!
