A compass is an instrument which is used to find the direction of a magnetic field

We can find the directions from the compass by the following steps:

The compass is kept at the place where we wish to know the directions.

Its needle indicates the north-south direction when it comes to rest.

The compass is then rotated until the north and south marked on the dial are at the two ends of the needle.

To identify the north pole of the magnetic needle, it is usually painted in a different colour.
