# Drawing the field lines

To draw the magnetic field lines around a magnet or other magnetic objects, one can use the alignment of compass needle near those.

The direction of these lines, in a magnet outside it, is away from N pole toward the S pole.

Using small iron filing one can display magnetic field patterns around magnetic objects.

The compass needles using its alignment with the magnetic field find shows the direction of the magnetic fields.
