How does a nail become a magnet?
you have to put it through an electro magnet to make it magnetic
The nail contains iron, which is ferromagnetic. Ferromagnets respond to a magnetic field (from a magnet) by generating their own magnetic field, ie, they become a magnet in the presence of a magnet. They also exhibit hysteresis, in that if they are exposed to a strong enough magnetic field, it will lock in and become a permanent magnet.
If we take a steel nail and tap it with a magnet in the same way a bunch of times, the magnet will align some of the magnetic domains in the nail. The nail will then have become a permanent magnet. The magnetic strength of the nail will not be great like the magnet that created it, but it will be present and will be permanent. The nail could then be used to pick up… Read More
Put the South pole of the nail against the bar magnet to see if it attracts or repels.
A magnetic field.
Rubbing a nail with a magnet will align some of the magnetic domains in the nail. This will have the effect of making the nail into a magnet. The nail won't be a strong magnet, but it will come away with some residual magnetism. Suggestion: try a simple experiment with a nail and a magnet and some small paper clips to see if this works.
1) Magnets can attract or repel each other, depending on their orientation. 2) Your nail is normally non-magnetic, but when a magnet comes near it, the magnet will induce magnetism within the nail. This will turn the nail into a magnet. Temporarily, and not into a particularly strong magnet, but still. 1) Magnets can attract or repel each other, depending on their orientation. 2) Your nail is normally non-magnetic, but when a magnet comes near… Read More
A nail can be magnetized by being hit with a magnet 50 or so times, alternately, if a nail or other piece of metal which is attracted to magnets (these metals are called ferromagnetic by scientists) is left near a strong magnet for a long period of time (a few days to a few years depending on how strong the magnet is) it will become magnetic.
A iron nail is attracted to a magnet
If you have a a magnet stuck to the nail then a paper clip stuck to the nail then you take the magnet away and the nail in the paper clip are still together why did that happen?
this happens because the magnet has magnetised the nail
If the north pole of the bar magnet suspends the first nail by attraction what is the nail's polarity?
The polarity of the nail will be such that the end of the nail in contact with the north pole of the magnet will be a south pole. The end of the nail away from the magnet will be a north pole. Picture the nail as an extension of the magnet if that helps lock in the idea.
If you bring a bar magnet close to the first iron nail can the first iron nail attract and lift a second nail?
It's possible that the first nail could lift a second nail with the first nail touching the magnet, but it depends on the strength of the magnet and the size and composition of the nails.
Making a magnet is very simple. We need : 1. an iron nail or any other long iron object 2. a magnet METHOD: Rub the magnet on the iron nail in one direction. Then lift it and repeat the action . Repeat this series of action 30-50 times. the iron object will turn into a magnet. But it will not become a strong magnet CAUTION: While rubbing the magnet with the iron object, we need… Read More
You stroke it with a magnet.That's how you turn a nail into a magnet.
The iron in the magnet is magnetized (their spins line up). You can magnetize a nail and it becomes a bar magnet.
By making the magnetic field around it a negative charge
A nail is made up of iron which is a ferromagnetic substance. Hence, it gets attracted to the magnet.
yes iron becomes temporarily magnetised
Yes, you will create a temporary magnet. EX: if you put and nail next to an iron magnet, the nail will be temporarly magnetic.
Magnetism. A ferromagnetic object (like an iron nail) that is touching a magnet temporarily becomes a magnet itself.
no 1ds nail is a girl magnet
By rubbing a magnet along an iron nail magnetic domains in the nail all align in a common direction, which causes each magnetic domain to add to the next and give the nail temporary magnetic properties.
Use the magnet to stroke the iron nail many times and you try to attract something
No, a nail is not a magnet. But a nail can be made into a magnet. The nail can be wrapped with a coil of wire and will become the core of an electromagnet if a DC current is run through the coil. Additionally, if the nail is exposed to a magnetic field, this field will "impress" a magnetic field on the nail. This small field will remain when the source of the original field… Read More
When you take a nail and a paperclip and they stick together on a magnet then take the magnet away the nail and paperclip still stick together what is that called?
However, if you bring a magnet near a piece of iron, such as a nail,and the paperclip. If the paperclip does not fall then the magnetic field has the iron nail. The result is a temporary magnet called an 'electromagnet'. The magnets either stick together or are suspended in midair
You can magnetize a nail four ways. No1. Get the nail and wrap some Insulated copper wire around it. You can use some other wires but it might not work as well. Make sure the wire isn't too thick. Wrap the wire 50+ times. Connect the two ends of the wire to a battery. Don't connect it to a strong power source as it will get very hot very quickly. Now the iron rod now… Read More
The iron nail would stick to a magnet. Copper is not attracted to magnets.
Take a transformer which has been considered inoperative. Dismantle and take off thin wire out of it. It will be an insulated one. Now wind this over an iron nail with many number of turns say some 50 or 100. Then pass current through this using a cell. As you take pins near by the nail those will be attracted by the nail as the nail gets magnetised because of current flow. Often as we… Read More
if you have a nail and a coil rapp the coil on the nail and put the nail on a magnet
An iron nail is more strongly attracted to the magnet than to the wooden box the magnet is stored in.
if a nail has any iron in it, it will be attacted to a magnet. Most nails are made of steel, a substance created from iron.
any end or to say specifically any molecule of magnet would attract the nail for nail is not a polarised one doubts can be clarified at email@example.com any end or to say specifically any molecule of magnet would attract the nail for nail is not a polarised one doubts can be clarified at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rub the nail vigorously against a magnet. The nail will now display magnetism.
the nail goes to the magnet
the magnet is in matter is called magnetism
you cant ?i dont think Answer (Contrablue) If the nail is made of iron or steel (an alloy of iron with a bit of carbon and usually certain metals such as molybdenum or chromium), it can be magnetized by rubbing it against a magnet. That is the easy and cheap way to turn a nail into a magnet. A more expensive way is to use a machine that subjects the nail to a strong magnetic… Read More
Why is a nail attracted to either pole of a magnet but another magnet is attracted to only one pole?
The nail is made of non-polarized iron. and doesn't repel either side of a magnet. A magnet has two poles and will repel another magnet with the same pole (north repels north, south repels south). Since the nail doesn't have a poles it doesn't repel either side.
It makes all the domains of the magnet jumble up ( they all turn separate ways ) So the nail is no longer acting as a magnet
First, grab an iron nail. Next, grab a bar magnet. Stroke the iron nail with the bar magnet at least 20 times. You can increase the strength by stroking it more. Now, bring the iron nail near some paper clips. It attracts them! Science is cool!
a iron nail will be a electromagnet because it will have a weir and this weir is connected to a battery
There may of course be more ways but so far I am only aware of three methods. In the first method you can wrap an insulated copper wire with many turns around the nail and then connect a the two end points of the wire to each terminals of a battery. This will effectively result in a makeshift electromagnet. Certain kinds of other metals will be attracted to the nail in your electromagnets nail core… Read More
the domain strength is much stronger in a magnetised nail. when you have a weak nail, there is no magnetic force. sometimes they can repell. this is what i think and i always know best thank you
some guy drop nail on the ground and pick it up but the nail staid on the magnet
an iron nail, a long peice of wire, a large battery or a transformer
The magnet will induce magnetism, at least temporarily, in the iron.
If the head of an iron nail touches a magnet the nail will be magnetized If the nail touches the north pole of the magnet what kind of pole is at the point of the nail?
The magnetic field would propagate through the material and extend itself for the length of the magnetic material in contact. As long as there is contact there is no pole present. When contact is broken the pole would be the opposite to the pole it was in contact with
A nail would be the best answer.
Both ends will.
If the south pole of a strong magnet brought an iron nail the domains in the nail will be oriented randomly?
The domain would line up.
Loop the coiled wire around the nail and run a current through the wire.
Yes, iron is attracted to magnets.
