Why do magnets have north and south poles?

Cutting a bar magnet in half will not remove its poles. It will produce just two magnets, each with a north pole which will be attracted to the south pole of the other magnet, and vice versa.

It’s this fundamental property of attraction that makes magnets useful for so many purposes, from holding a party invitation to a refrigerator to performing medical imaging.
