Do the field lines of two bar magnets attracting each other connect? What does it suggest?

The north pole of one bar magnet faces the south pole of the other. Do the field lines connect?

    Magnetic field lines never intersect, otherwise the field would have two directions at the intersection point. The field from two bar magnets, however positioned relative to each other is the superposition of the the fields from the two magnets separately. The whole theory of magnetostatics is contained in the two equations div(B)=0, ∂B/∂t =0 (obtained by specialising the Maxwell Eqns to static conditions).

    a million) Magnetic field strains around a bar magnet B) unfold out from one pole and curve around to the different 2) Earth's magnetic field could make a magnet out of an iron bar via inflicting the magnetic domain names to D) Line up in an identical course

    I am sorry but there is not such lines at all. There are perpendicular to the seems once as iron dust.
