It all depends on the way in which the iron's 'domains' are aligned. Iron is inherently magnetic as a material, but can become demagnetized as time goes on, due to sudden impact or when affected by another magnetic source. For iron to become magnetized 'domains' need to be in parallel with each other so the magnetic field created all flows in the same direction. An unmagnetized iron source has all of its domains misaligned A brief explanation of domains are a series of positive and negative charged atomic particles within the iron itself which behaves much like tiny magnets themselves.

Iron Magnatized The "magnitized" iron will have domains aligned to Earth's magnetic field. These magnitized iron will have poles and act like magnets. Some …other iron do not behave as magnets because their domains are randomly oriented. This means that the domains do not align and will not act like magnets. This is also the same for other objects that don't behave like magnets.
the magnet attracts to iron by the magnetic field both the iron and the magnet have
the substance which has capacity to attract iron particle is known as magnetic object
In a magnetic material that is not a magnet, magnetic domains are arranged in random fashion canceling the net magnetic field. If such a material, like an iron rod, is exposed… to a strong magnetic field, the domains will arrange themselves in the direction of the applied field and hence object will become magnetized.
Hard disks and floppy disks are examples of magnetic media.
Ferro magnetic materials (those attracted to magnets) have a special arrangement of their electrons which makes them susceptible to magnetic fields. Materials without this spe…cial electron structure are not affected my magnets or electric fields in the same way.
The magnetic poles of them. The North Poles pull on the South Poles, I think. No one know how these pheonomenon forces are create but they have some properties that we know of… today
You are in a room with no metal objects except for two iron rods. Only one of them is a magnet. How can you identify which one is a magnet?
Simple break one of the rods apart and see if it sticks together if it does it's a magnet if it doesn't then it isn't one
because the car is make up of iron
Yes. Iron is ferrous.
Every electron is a tiny electromagnet. A pair of electrons spinning in the same direction makes a stronger electromagnet. A pair of electrons spinning in opposite directions,… however, isn't magnetic. The magnetic fields of each cancel one another. This is why most substances are not magnets. In most atoms the various fields cancel each other because the electrons spin in opposite directions.
Most types of Iron are magnetic, however depending on its composition and purity, there are kinds that are not magnetic. For example, Steel is mostly Iron, Carbon, and a few o…ther lesser materials, and can be magnetic. Pure Iron is of course magnetic. The iron in your blood, however, is not the magnetic variety. It all depends on the composition.
Other than iron, steel, nickel and cobalt may be attracted to a magnet
Pennies Older than 1996 are made of a high percentage of copper which is not magnetic, Pennies after 1996 are made of Zinc and or Steel with copper plating .. the Zinc/steel i…s magnetic and will stick to a magnet
An Iron becomes a magnet when the iron piece is rubbed by a magnet continuously for more than fifty times.
