Adjacent Diagram Shows Small Magnet Placed Near Solenoid

The adjacent diagram shows a small magnet placed near a solenoid. State whether the magnet is attracted … as the switch is pressed….



As the switch is pressed, the magnet will get repelled. The reason is that at the face of solenoid near the north pole of magnet, the current flows in anti-clockwise direction, so the face becomes north pole. The like poles repel, so the magnet is repelled.
