The material that attracts iron is
The material that attracts iron is called magnet.
The end of a free hanging magnet which point towards North is called
The magnetic pole near earth's geographic north pole is actually the south magnetic pole. When it comes to magnets, opposites attract. This fact means that the north end of a magnet in a compass is attracted towards the south magnetic pole, which lies close to the geographic north pole
