Would a magnet work in a vacuum or space?
Magnets work because their atoms are aligned in certain orientation so that the magnetic field is not chaos but is organized as ripples around the matter. Such organized electromagnetic field of any nature can exist without any supporting media like air or water. If you think space is vacuum then you are wrong again. There is a lot of black or dark matter (invisible to current scientific equipment) in this universe and lots of particles like cosmic rays emitted by stars and galaxies. So magnets will work regardless of vacuum or space.
Yes. Otherwise Astronauts would NOT be able to hear Mission Control on Earth (earphones / headphones rely on magnets to create sound waves). And yes, magnets work in a vacuum. Light is an Electromagnetic Wave and it travels through space.
Yes. Light can travel through the vacuum of space and so a mirror would work (i.e. it would be able to reflect that light). The Hubble Space Telescope uses mirrors.
Yes, magnetic fields do still exist is space.
I'm sure they use digital cameras in space. The camera would have to be specially designed to work in a vacuum. Other than that, no problem.
No. First of all it wouldn't stay on the ground. and why would you need to vacuum? A vacuum cleaner depends on a difference in air pressure to operate. With no air pressure in space, there could be no difference in air pressure and thus no operation. Inside a manned spacecraft, which is usually pressurized a vacuum cleaner will obviously work just fine; especially for collecting and disposing of water globules. Also the standard NASA… Read More
Some kind of magnet or magnetic field is necessary for a motor to operate. Alternating current vacuum cleaners (that plug into the wall) have motors with electromagnets. Direct current vacuum cleaners (that plug into the car's cigarette lighter socket) have motors with permanent magnets.
yes u can use it only if you have a astronaut suit for it It would not be crushed as space is a vacuum. Any air inside would leak out, leaving vacuum inside it. It may or may not be able to work in a vacuum. Of course, even if it works you could not hear it, as there is nothing to conduct the sound from the earbuds to your eardrums.
Ion engines only work in the vacuum of space.
Yes, although it would require engineering to withstand the vacuum that would make lubricants evaporate, and extreme heat/cold that would affect insulation.
No, a suction cup works by forcing air out of the space between it and the surface it's on. No air = no suction.
The active device in a microwave oven is a magnetron, a thermionic vacuum tube. In this a powerful magnet is employed to force the electrons to travel in a spiral in the resonant cavities. This geometry determines the wavelength of the waves.
Cooling a magnet would cause the magnets atoms to work slower. THIS would cause the magnetic force to work faster, increasing its strengh.
Most clocks work fine in space. The mechanical manual-wind wristwatches worn by space-walking astronauts work just fine strapped to the outside of the wrist of the spacesuit, in the vacuum of space. The atomic clock in each GPS satellite works just fine. While we haven't bothered actually testing, it seems likely that pendulum and water clocks would not work in space, because of the lack of gravity.
A system is said to be at a partial vacuum if it is at a negative pressure (pressure less than atmospheric pressure). When you use a straw, the partial vacuum created inside the straw is what causes your drink to travel up the straw and into your mouth. A perfect vacuum would be a space with nothing in it and a temperature of 0 degrees kelvin. Practically, however, we can only achieve and work with… Read More
sound doesn't work a vacuum
Jet engines use the oxygen in the air to get the fuel to burn. In space there's no oxygen, so a jet engine would simply go out. Space rockets carry both their fuel and their oxygen, which allows them to work in the vacuum of space.
It would be quite spectacular I think. The vacuum would cause the can to explode.
Yes you can if all conditions were perfect. By that I mean that the bottle would have to be a near perfect vacuum by sucking out the air from the bottle with the straw. The vacated air from the bottle would be replaced by the baloon stretching to fill the space left by the air. You would have no need to blow into the baloon as the vacuum would do the work for you.
Yes. Magnets work anywhere. For example, it's the Earth's magnetic field that deflects much of the Sun's harmful radiation.
Electromagnetic waves are waves which can travel through the vacuum of outer space.
Thermite has its own oxygen source so it can burn without an outer source of oxygen, including underwater and in the vacuum of space. However, I do doubt that thermite can burn in space, since space is quite cold. It would just depend in how far away from the Sun you are when you light the thermite.
A propeller needs a fluid in which to operate, like water or air. In space, there is not enough air for a propeller to work. Space is almost a complete vacuum.
Stars are in a vacuum - around the star there is no significant amount of gas.
Because in space there are no particles (this is called a vacuum), however conduction and convection require particles to work eg. solids, liquids and gases have particle arrangements. So thermal radiation has to travel through space via radiation as space is a vacuum and particle-less.
First off, the magnet has to be very strong. An electro-magnet would work best. Secondly, the reason data gets erased it that it is stored on the hard disk magnetically. So exposing it to magnet would make most of the data unreadable.
Yes. A magnet will still work after being cut.
Much of space is a vacuum so neither will work.
A digital pen - that is, a stylus that "writes" on a computer screen - should work perfectly well in space, assuming that the tablet device or touchscreen would work in vacuum. In the early days of the US space program, there was a level of concern that traditional ball-point pens would not work in free-fall, because the ink was gravity-fed to the ink ball. (Ball point pens typically do not work when held upside… Read More
Advantages: Keeps you alive in space Provides air Cools you to prevent you from cooking in the Sun What else do you need? Disadvantages: Expensive Bulky Uncomfortable to wear on the ground (but why would you?) Difficult to work with thick gloves on, but better than breathing vacuum.
What if there was a magnet glove that would work for the paper clips and stuff that would be really cool
I have known that it will not work in space while you are in the space shuttle. But it is a good thing that it works on earth but the bad thing is that it doesn't work in space. Answered by:SAV
No. Space is a vacuum, and therefore no work is exerted on the meteorite. The above answer is incorrect. Anytime a MASS is moved over a distance, work has been done...by definition of Work (as in Physics). Without gravity an object does not have any weight, BUT it still has Mass. A Force was required to initiate the motion, but without gravity and in a vacuum the motion continues indefinitely without additional Forces acting on… Read More
Acceleration and motion work in a vacuum the same way as they do here -- except for the air (and other) resistance and the gravity of the earth. Let's look at a pair of examples and check things out. We can gain leverage through gravity and friction here on earth. We can bowl. If you try to bowl in space, you'll be moving away from the ball as it is moving away from you. The… Read More
I think if you put a magnet in a liquid i think it is not going to work again. I think if you put a magnet in a liquid i think it is not going to work again.
No, the core has to be a soft iron core.
Depends on what you mean. Speakers need air to work, so outside a spaceship they wouldn't be able to make any sound. Radio waves work just fine in vacuum, but the extreme temperatures are quite likely to kill electronics intended for room temperature. Ignoring the issue of hardware survival there's also the question whether ordinaly commercial transmissions would reach into space or not. Even if the radio is working there might not be anything to… Read More
Except for the audio (sounds), yes.
There's no reason why almost any process that does work in air on Earth can't also be done in space in vacuum. One example: The operation of inserting an artificial satellite into orbit certainly involves a lot of forces acting through a lot of distances, to get the satellite moving just right. Any time you see a rocket engine burning with fire coming out the end, the force of the engine is acting on the… Read More
get a stick n a propeller n fix them the way that they make electricity is by moving an magnet inside coils of wire so attach a magnet to the inside of the propeller and wrap coils of wire around the magnet but with 1mm of space between. attach both ends of the wire to an applience e.g a light and it will work
Most people would answer yes. The answer is no. And I know of Newtons third law and how rockets work. In the presence of the vacuum the molecules would not get to make enough impacts to create enough heat to raise enough pressure, but will really be expanding because of the state of vacuum in space and the effect it will have on those molecules. This will cause the burning/expanding gases to seem like it… Read More
No, kites need both wind and gravity to work.. and neither of those are in space.
It doesn't. Sound waves need a medium to travel through in order to move beyond the source. Most of space is an empty vacuum, and thus sound waves have nothing to travel through.
if the magnet is magnetically transparent then anything but if not it will only work through ferromagnetic materials
When you run an air compressor in outer space will it work and will condensation form in the air tank?
It wont work because there is no compressor on earth powerful enough to overcome the vacuum of space. You'd un-compress the tank and make it crumple like a hot soda can in ice water.
Ask a Mormon only they know how they work.
I would suggest vacuum cleaner robots. They do work on laminated floors and are very convenient for those who have a busy schedule.
Magnet or a good magnetic screwdriver, you would be suprised what all will work.
There is no scientific proof whatsoever that magnet bracelets work. There will be a few people who swear by them. And there will always be vendors.
Some power stations do work with a wire and magnet but some others don't.
The balance would not work in outer space. If you are in outer space then you are not experience a gravitational force, which what a balance measures. Or if you are in orbit then you are in free fall with the objects around you and would feel weightless and also be unable to measure with a balance.
