Magnet: A magnet is an object that attracts objects made of iron, cobalt, and nickel. Magnet comes to rest in the North-South direction when suspended freely.

Use of Magnets: Magnets are used

  • in refrigerators.
  • in radio and stereo speakers.
  • in audio and video cassette players.
  • in children’s toys and;
  • on hard discs and floppies of computers.

Properties of Magnet

  • A free suspended magnet always points towards the north and south direction.
  • The pole of a magnet that points toward the north direction is called the north pole or north-seeking.
  • The pole of a magnet that points toward the south direction is called the south pole or south seeking.

Like poles of magnets repel each other while unlike poles of magnets attract each other.

Requirements for this Science Experiment

  • Battery
  • Plug key
  • Wires
  • Rheostat
  • Ammeter
  • Long thick copper wire
  • Cardboard
  • Rubber cork
