Is magnetism a invisible force?
You may be wondering, what does it mean that magnetism is "an invisible force". Well, magnetism is an invisible force because the magnet reaches out and when it does, there is a magnetic field around it so the magnet does not need to be touching another magnet to pull or push it. ...

What are two different ways we can make invisible magnetic field lines?
You can make magnetic field lines with a magnet. You an use a permanent magnet, or an electromagnet. ...

What is a magnets magnetic field?
Whatever it is that enables a magnet to push another magnet without ever touching it, is called the "magnetic field". It is an invisible attribute of a magnet that surrounds the magnet and exerts forces on other magnets and some non magnets, like iron. ...

What do you call the region around a magnet where the invisible forces of attraction or repulsion can be felt?
The magnetic field. If it's an electromagnet, the electromagnetic field.

Can you give me a short phrase for magnet?
A magnet is a material or object that produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field is invisible but is responsible for the most notable property of a magnet. This property is the force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, and attracts or repels other magnets. ...

Where is the magnetic field on a magnet?
On the gray side of the magnet, if you take out a magnet and put it next to a magnet things you put on the fridge, It sticks to it! You see, the magnet's force is invisible so u can't see it. Or if you put it next to a magnet that sticks to that magnet, You might feel it's force or not. I tried it once :). ...
Asked in Science, Magnetism, The Difference Between
What is the difference between a magnet and an electromagnet?
An electromagnet is just one kind of magnet. A magnet is a material or object that produces a field (called a magnetic field) that is normally invisible but that exerts a pull on ferromagnetic materials such as iron. One magnet may also repel another magnet, or may forcefully attract it. The difference between an electromagnet and most other kinds of magnet is that most other magnets always produce a magnetic field, but an electromagnet requires an electric field flowing through a loop or...
Does vinegar affect the magnetic pull of a magnet?
No. A magnet is a material that produces a magnetic field. The MF is invisible and is responsible for the magnet's force that pulls on ferromagnetic materials such as iron. It attracts or repels other metals. ...
Where is the magnetic field on a bar magnet the strongest?
The field is strongest on the poles of the magnet (the ends of the magnet). More specifically, the 8 corners of the magnet are where the strongest magnetic field will occur. The weakest field occurs in the center of the magnet. ...

What is the area around the magnet called?
The volume surrounding a magnet will be filled with the lines of magnetic force. Since these are similarly polarized, they repel each other - eventually creating a sphere at a sufficiently large distance. This sphere is the magnetic field of that magnet. ...
Asked in Magnetism
How do paperclips stick to magnets?
They are kind of like a force around each other. They are negative and positive pulls. As you hold a paper clip to a magnet its an invisible field around the paperclip and the magnet. The paper clip also has magnet attracted metal so it will stick. ...
What happens when you put a magnet next to a compass?
Then the compass would react according to the magnetic field of the magnet. Then the compass would react according to the magnetic field of the magnet. Then the compass would react according to the magnetic field of the magnet. Then the compass would react according to the magnetic field of the magnet. ...
Asked in Magnetism
Does a magnet have a magnetic field around it?
A magnet has a magnetic field. In fact, a magnet, by definition, is an object which creates a magnetic field. A magnet may be a solid object which we could call a permanent magnet. A magnet may also be created by an arrangement of wires carrying and electric current and we call that an electromagnet. ...
