The magnet force keeps the objects in contact with each other.
I am trying to rewrite the sentence above I created such that it has an opposite meaning. My examples are as follows:
The magnet force keeps the objects in non-contact with each other.
The magnet force keeps the objects apart from each other.
I would like to know which is better. I found a lot of sentences using the expression "in non-contact with" on google, but it seems that most of them are written by non-natives.
