Watt would we do if the earth flipped its magnetic poles will we call south north will we place south at the top of the map.Watt wouldn’t do anything, he’s been dead for too long.
North, south etc are just conventional labels for direction on a spherical earth. So, we would still say the N Pole is in the north. Of course the compasses would need changing as a magnetic north pole would now point towards our northern magnetic pole - well, wouldn’t need to change my Silva, I’ll just need to remember that red points south; I can probably manage that
