Are all magnetic fields a closed circular shape? Is so, does this shape have any affect on the way they work? While I was in my basement playing with two conserderably strong magnets, I observed sparks jumping from one magnet to another. Is this normal behavior? One of the magnets were an electromagnet and the other was a thick 3 1/2magnet like the type you would find on the back of a refridgerator magnet. This also raised another question, can magnets create electricity? Thanks for your trouble!
