Magnetism is defined as the property of materials to respond to applied magnetic fields. Magnetism is caused by permanent magnets which are caused by ferromagnetism and also by the magnetic field.
Magnetism is caused when all the atoms of a metal like lodestone, iron, cobalt, nickel, or gadolinium are lined up in one direction. If this happens during the cooling process, after being melted, it will result in a permanent magnet.
