When you split a magnet each piece becomes its own magnet and will repel each other

What happens when you cut a bar magnet in half?

When you cut a bar magnet in half carefully, it will create two smaller magnets, each with their own north and south poles. The dual polarity of magnets is part of their fundamental nature. It's analogous to breaking apart two Legos; each will still have a top and a bottom.
