How did people before Ampere (eg-Coulomb) who used magnetic-pole model, know that only two surfaces (north and south poles) of a bar magnet exerts and experiences force while the rest of the surfaces is free from magnetic force? Is there a deduction for this or is it just a guess made from experiment with two bar magnets?
