What you've asked doesn't really make any sense. Can you be clearer?

What qualification are you studying? GCSE, A-level or undergraduate? This will let others know the level of explanation you need.

GCSE: In its simplest form, think of a permanent bar magnet. All you need to know is that they exhibit the property of magnetic force. Magnets always have two poles - a north pole and a south pole. Like poles repel while unlike poles attract each other.

Magnetic lines of force (field lines) are assigned the convention of flowing out of the north pole and into the south pole.

A hypothetical second north pole placed within the magnetic field of the bar magnet, will be deflected away from the bar magnets north pole and attracted to the south pole.

Because the magnetic forces act in 3-dimensional space, it is usual to reference the orientation to a magnetic source. For example the earths magnetic field.

Orientation describes the magnetic force relationship between two or more objects against each other or referenced to a permanent feature like the earths magnetic field.

If you need a more in-depth answer for A-level or above, ask.

In which case orientation is simply how the magnetic fields (north and south poles) of different objects are aligned in relation to each other or to the earths north and south poles.
