1. If you have two compasses, each one is a dipole, and depending on the strength of themagnetic fields they produce, their own interactions may overcome their interactions withthe earth's field. Assume this is true, and we put two compasses next to one anotherDraw a stable configuration (each compass points the direction of the other compass'smagnetic field) of needles. Is this the only stable configuration? Explain
