Magnetism

By: Aleina, Payton, and Kaitlyn

Properties of Magnets

There are three properties of magnets

1. Attract iron/materials with iron

2. Attract or repel other magnets

3. Point north when they swing freely

Magnetic Fields

What are they?

A region around a magnetic material or a moving electric charge within which the force of magnetism acts.

A picture is in the diagram below.

How is distance determined?

The distance between magnetic fields indicates the strength of a magnetic field.

Where are field lines the strongest?

As can be visualized with the magnetic field lines, the magnetic field is strongest inside the magnetic material. The strongest external magnetic fields are near the poles. A magnetic north pole will attract the south pole of another magnet, and repel a north pole.

Review

Properties of magnets:

1.Attract iron/materials with iron

2.Attract or repel other magnets

3.Point north when they swing freely

Magnetic Fields:

A region around a magnetic material or a moving electric charge within which the force of magnetism acts

Repelling:

Repelling occur s when the same poles get pushed together

Attract:

Attracting occurs when opposite poles get pushed together

Hope you learned more about magnets!
