Can zinc be used in an electromagnet?

no...only magnetic materials can be used as electromagnet...zinc is not a magnetic material


Which material do we use in the core of an electromagnet and why?

Soft iron is used as the core of an electromagnet. It increases the strength of the magnet.


What material can be used to make an electromagnet?

The magnetic field in an electromagnet is actually produced by the coil of wires with a current running through it. However certain materials, termed 'ferromagnetic' materials concentrate the magnetic flux when a rod of the material is placed within the coil (termed the 'magnetic core'). The most common of materials used for this have been iron based.


What is an eletromagnet?

An electromagnet is that type of magnet that only acts like a magnet only when an electric current passes through it. Under normal conditions, an electromagnet is not magnetic, but when current is passed through the electromagnet, it turns into a strong magnet. Magnet fields are generated when electricity is passed through the electromagnet. This property can be used to selectively make a material magnetic and non magnetic.


What happens when you turn off the current in an electromagnet?

When we turn of the current in an electromagnet then electromagnet looses its magnetic property,provided the material used inside the current carrying solenoid is soft iron core. If, the material is steel then after the current is turned the magnetism propety still prevails and hence steel becomes a permanent magnet.


What makes a electromagnet stronger?

electricity is used to make the magnetic pull stronger.

How do you make a electromagnet stronger?

For a simple copper wire around iron nail electromagnet, increasing the number of rounds the copper wire makes around the nail will increase the electromagnet's strength. Also, increasing the voltage applied(adding a battery) will increase the magnetic field.
