Does the strength of a magnet affect its pull?
Question Date: 2013-01-25
Answer 1:

Stronger magnets will have a stronger force of attraction. The size of the magnet is also very important, as the magnetic field dies off quite quickly with distance from the magnet. The bigger the magnet, the further away you'll be able to feel the magnetic field.

Answer 2:

The more powerful the magnetic field, the more force it generates.
