Increases


Decreases


Stays the Same


None of the above

Detailed explanation1: The force of attraction decreases as the magnets get farther apart. 8. What is the relationship between the distance separating two magnets and the force of attraction between them? The greater the distance, the weaker the force; or the closer the magnets are, the stronger the force between them.
Detailed explanation2: With respect to distance, magnetic force follows an inverse square law. The magnetic force equation is identical to Coulombâ€™s law (if you are familiar with it). The important thing to remember is that force is inversely proportional to distance squared (i.e. it obeys an inverse square law with distance).
Detailed explanation3: The magnitude of the magnetic force is inversely proportional to the distance between two magnets. So, if the distance is decreased, the mutual magnetic force between them will increase.
