Does reversing the current of a solenoid reverse the direction in which it moves?

Solenoids only operate in one direction. When the solenoid coil is energized, a fixed internal component (called the stop) becomes magnetized, thereby attracting a moving component (called the plunger). This magnetic attraction creates a pulling motion, moving the plunger toward the stop. Reversing either the current or the polarity of a solenoid does not reverse
