Bar magnets are already magnetized. They don't need to add wire and electricity.


How are electromagnets formed?

A magnet consisting essentially of a coil of insulated wire wrapped around a soft iron core that is magnetized only when current flows through the wire.

Yes, if a nail is made of steel, it will will not be magnetized unless it is magnetized by a magnet by being hit.


Which type of magnet can easily be magnetized and demagnetized?

An electronic magnet is by far the easiest because you magnetize one by hitting a button (or for home made magnets) connecting a wire, and demagnetizing by hitting the button again or disconnecting the wire.

How are The magnetic domains in non-magnetized materials different from the magnetic domains in magnetized materials?

In non magnetized material the domains are not ordered -they do not align with one another.


How are domain arranged in materials that are magnetized and in ones that are not?

Domains in magnetized materials are all aligned in one direction - those in un-magnetized objects are arranged randomly.
