Various Properties Of Magnet

  1. Magnets have two poles which are called the North Pole and the South Pole
  2. Ezoic
  3. North and south poles attract each other. Unlike poles attract each other
  4. The North Pole repels the North Pole while the South Pole repels the South Pole. Like poles repel each other
  5. You can put two pieces of magnet on your table in your classroom to demonstrate this
  6. Ezoic
  7. If the two pieces of magnet get attracted to each other, it means that the North Pole of the magnet is pointed to the south Pole of the magnet

If the two pieces of magnet on your table in your classroom repel each other, it means that the North Pole of the magnet points to the North Pole of the same magnet or the south Pole points to the south Pole. Like sides repel each other

Uses of Magnet

  1. Magnets are used in the production of speakers
  2. Ezoic
  3. Most microphones have magnets in order to detect and transmit sound
  4. Magnets are used to find iron tiny parts of machines
  5. Magnets are used to produce electricity that is known as electro magnetism
  6. Ezoic
  7. Magnets are used to produce motor
  8. Magnets are used to lift heavy loads

Materials that can be attracted by magnets are called magnetic objects eg nails, razor blade, pin etc

Materials that cannot be attracted by magnets are called non magnetic objects eg paper, rubber, plastic etc
