    The magnetic field is produced by the rotation of the iron core, which as a ferrous material loves to give and receive magnetism. One theory is that the liquid part of the iron is subject to occasional swirling, which changes the alignment of the magnetic material.

    It's related to DC and AC.

    Surely they don't? If they did compasses would be unusable.
