What metals does a magnet not attract?
Pure gold, silver, mercury, steel, Aluminum and several others.
all magnets attract ferrous metals (metals containing iron) and the opposite poles of another magnet.
No metals can attract a magnet. Only magnets can attract metals. (Believe me there is a difference). However the most common examples of metals which magnets would be able to pick up are Iron and Steel (steel is an alloy of Iron and Carbon)
There are magnets in magnets that magnetically attract metal...
Lead, one of the poor metals, is not magnetic, and a magnet will not attract it.
Metals, not non-metals. You might want to find a periodic table.
Iron and alloys containing iron. Answer: Iron, nickel and cobalt and their alloys are the common metals that attract magnets. Also, the rare metals gadolinium, neodymium and samarium attract magnets.
magnet can only attract magnetic materials like iron
Ones that contain IRON
Yes. A magnet weakly attracts many objects which aren't metals. Given a magnet powerful enough, it can attract those objects.
Metals not magnetic, but permeable will become magnets when near or touching a permanent magnet. You can stroke some metals in the same direction repeatedly on a magnet and make it a magnet.
Usually magnets attract any iron based metals. Magnets usually only attract or repel other magnets
All the metals are not attracted by a magnet as it attracts only ferromagnetic materials. example. Iron, Cobalt, Nickel, Gadolinium, Dysprosium.
Only certain metals have their atoms aligned in such a way that a magnet will attract them. The most common are iron, steel, and nickel. Many other metals don't have uniform arrangements of their atoms so there is no measurable directional attraction.
go on google, they have everything
because magnet has a property that can attract metals/metal particles
Actually, they only attract certain metals. The attraction for other metals is insignificant. For example, a magnet will strongly attract iron. The way this works is that the magnet induces magnetism in the iron. The iron has tiny areas - domains, I think they are called - of magnetism; an external magnetic field will make those domains align, at least partially.
water is bipolar, but it is not attracted to a magnet. Magnets attract metals which change electrons in the metal when are put together.
You are forgetting about Newton's Third Law. If the magnet attracts the metal, then it follows that the metal also attracts the magnet. There can be no one-way attraction.
Magnets attract all ferus metals. They use magnets to treat cancer.
it attracts to older coins, the newer coins are made of metals that are not magnetic
There are certain metals that are attracted to magnets, and other which are not. Coins are mostly made from metals such as copper and zinc that are not attracted to magnets. For a magnet to work a metal or alloy must contain iron.
magnet are materials that posses a magnetic field and can attract metals and some magnetic material
Because not all metals can be attracted to magnet. (by previous contributor) Some metals can be attracted to a magnet. Yes, only some, in fact only steel, iron, nickel, cobalt and other permanent magnets. These metals/materials are ferromagnetic, the type of magnetism where the metal can be attracted to a magnet. For other metals, there are other ways for it to react with magnetism. The other two commonly known magnetism are paramagnetism and diamagnetism.
Magnets attract specific types of metals such as: Iron Nickel Cobalt Steel Try this: Get a magnet hover it over different objects, see what it attracts and repels (doesn't attract).
when A magnet, example compass needle is at rest, it points to the north pole of the earth. A magnet also attract certain metals when brought closer to them.
Magnet are objects which have an electromagnetic force. It attracts iron and other metals which have the property of being induced by a magnets effect and repels other magnets.
A magnet will attract any "ferromagnetic" metal. Most ferromagnetic metal found in a scrap heap will be plain steel, but other metals and alloys can be ferromagnetic. For example, pure nickel will be attracted to a magnet. The only pure metals that are attracted to a magnet are iron, nickel, and cobalt. Usually any metal that is ferromagnetic will contain one or more of these three metals. It always depends on the specific metal alloys… Read More
there are only 3 magnetic metals in the known world of metals: iron, cobalt and nickel - this answers your question... so if you have lost your wedding ring don't fish out the magnet... it just wont work :(
Both are magnets, but an electromagnet needs electricity to become a magnet. Hence, a magnet is also the same as a electromagnet. Also a magnet Will attract ferrous metals as will an electromagnet, when switched on!
What is it called when a pen is on a piece of paper and a magnet is under it and the pen moves in the same direction as the magnet?
This is called magnetism. metals in the pen attract the negative and positive charges in the magnets.
Yes, pure nickel is one of the few metals that's ferromagnetic; i.e. it's attracted to a magnet and can itself be magnetized. Iron and cobalt are the only other two common ferromagnetic metals. Gadolinium, neodymium and samarium are the remaining metals.
putting magnets in high temperature makes it harder for it being a magnet so it will not attract metals .
Magnets are usually made out of metals, so yes. However, such metals (especially iron) are not always magnetic - rather, they can be magnetized.
What is a type of household magnet that can repel another household magnet that seems to pull in anything metal?
Magnets same poles repel and opposites attract. The magnet will act on a lot of metals. They are attracted to it. It all has to do with the magnetic domains aligning.
Mostly Ferrous metals (alloys containing iron) but also Nickel, Cobalt and Gadolinium.
What, precisely, are these "kinds of irons" you speak of? If you meant "what kinds of metals" ... the ferromagnetic ones, of course.
steeel can never attract magnet
Because in foods may contain bitts of metal that SHOULDNT be in the food so the magnet attract all metals on to the magnet. by zamzam year 8
Magnets only attract certain kinds of metals, mostly ferrous metals such as iron and steel, as well as pure nickel. US dimes are mostly made of copper with a small amount of nickel, not enough to be attracted to a magnet.
Because it have some particles of iron in it,, and also some other metals like alluminium,copper etc.
If this situation is looked at like a magnet and steel, there are no metals that attract light, nor is there anything else that will. Light can be "bent" by objects with massive gravity, but it isn't "attracted" by metals.
Anything that a magnet will attract on dry land, it will also attract in water.
No.just Iron,Nickel,Cobalt attract to a magnet
yes a magnet can attract a razor blade
The only 3 elements that are magnetic are Iron, Nickel and Cobalt. Any other metals containing any of these elements (e.g. Steel contains Iron) will also be magnetic.
The only element attracted to magnets is iron. If a magnet sticks to it, it contains iron. Since steel is mostly iron, it attracts to magnets as well. Gold, silver, titanium, platinum, copper, and aluminum are metals that don't attract to magnets, just to name a few.
An iron nail will be attracted to magnets. But it itself will not attract other metals unless it has been magnetized through a certain procedure.
What is an example of a situation where it would be best to use certain types of magnets to attract different types of objects?
Electro magnets can be used to attract metals temperarily while permanent magnet would be used for compasses.
Either pole of a magnet can attract steel.
The electrons of certain metals align themselves with the electrons of a magnet, causing the attraction. Magnets are actually iron pieces.The reason for which they attract iron pieces is that it has aligned Diatoms present in it.Therefore only If you rub an iron piece with magnet its diatoms get aligned and they also become magnets for some time.So,the main reason for the magnetic attractions are the aligned Diatoms.
