MAGNETISM




1. STATE THE PROPERTIES OF MAGNETS




Magnets have north and south Magnets attract the opposite Magnets repel the same poles:
poles. poles: North repels North
1. North attracts South
2. South attracts North




Magnets repel the same poles: Magnets line of with the Earth's…

To induce a material, we need to:
Place a magnetic material (a paper clip for example) to a strong magnet without touching.
The paper clip will become an induced magnet, which means the end of the paper clip closer to
the magnet has the opposite…

Magnetisation is a process by which an object can be made into a magnet.
Only ferrous materials can be made into magnets.

How to magnetise an object?
1. Stroke an object, for example an iron bar in one direction using the
magnet as shown in…

6. DISTINGUISH BETWEEN THE MAGNETIC PROPERTIES OF IRON AND STEEL

Iron is a soft or temporary magnetic material; it quickly loses its magnetism when the magnetizing field
is removed.

Steel is a hard or permanent magnetic material; it does not readily lose its magnetism when…
