Dear krishna,

Angle of diclination:Angle at a particular point on the Earth's surface between the direction of the true or geographic North Pole and the magnetic north pole. The angle of declination has varied over time because of the slow drift in the position of the magnetic north pole.

Angle of dip:  the angle that a magnetic needle makes with the plane of the horizon.

We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.

All the best.
