How Magnets Work

A magnet is any material capable of producing a magnetic field. Since any moving electric charge generates a magnetic field, electrons are tiny magnets. However,

Types of Magnets

Have you ever wondered about the types of magnets other than those adorning your refrigerator? In this ScienceStruck article, you will know how many types

How Magnets Work

Everyone has observed magnetism, from refrigerator magnets to playing with hobby magnets, and more. Magnetism is a fundamental force of nature. Magnets are a direct

What is a Magnetic Field

Introduction Mathematical descriptions of the magnetic influence of electric currents and magnetic materials are called magnetic fields. At any given point, the field is specified by

How Magnets Work

A magnet is any object that has a magnetic field. It attracts ferrous objects like pieces of iron, steel, nickel and cobalt. In the early

Types of Magnetic Materials

All types of materials and substances posses some kind of magnetic properties which are listed further down in this article. But normally the word “magnetic


Electromagnetism is the force produced when an electrical current flows through a simple conductor such as a piece of wire or cable. A small magnetic field
