what happens when you dip a bar magnet in a pile of pins? why?

Dear student, 

Please find below the solution to the asked query:
If a bar magnet is dipped in a pile of pins, these pins would stick all over the magnet provided if they are made up of iron. This pattern of sticking of pins to the magnet shows that these pins get attracted towards the two ends of a bar magnet showing that these ends are the poles of the bar magnet.
