1. What does the movement of an electric charge cause?

The movement of a magnetic charge

An electron or proton

2. What happens when two objects with magnetic fields are brought near each other?

A magnetic force either causes attraction or repulsion

A magnetic force will cause electrical charges

The objects will become magnets

3. Is a magnet a dipole or monopole?

Monopole, because it is one magnet
