The magnetic moments of atoms in a ferromagnetic material cause them to behave something like tiny permanent magnets. They stick together and align themselves into small regions of more or less uniform alignment called magnetic domains or Weiss domains. Magnetic domains can be observed with a magnetic force ...

Basics of Magnetism. by Ron Kurtus (revised 29 January 2013). Magnetism is a force of attraction or repulsion that acts at a distance. It is due to a magnetic field, which is caused by moving electrically charged particles. It is also inherent in magnetic objects such as a magnet. A magnet is an object that exhibits a strong ...

Jul 28, 2015 ... Magnetism is one aspect of the combined electromagnetic force. It refers to physical phenomena arising from the force caused by magnets, objects that produce fields that attract or repel other objects. A magnetic field exerts a force on particles in the field due to the Lorentz force, according to Georgia State ...

When it come to magnets, there is a force of attraction between opposite poles and a force of repulsion between like poles. ... When electrons spin around the nucleus of an atom, it causes the atom to become a tiny magnet, with north and south poles and a magnetic field. In most materials, the electrons orbiting the nuclei of ...

We understand that magnets have two poles and that depending on the orientation of two magnets there can be attraction (opposite poles) or repulsion ( similar poles). We recognize that there is some region extending around a magnet where this happens. The magnetic field describes this region. There are two different ...

Jul 8, 2014 ... The magnetic field direction goes from the north pole to the south pole of the magnet, and observation tells us that north poles are attracted to south poles once one has many magnets. two magnets ... Whenever two bodies feel attraction or repulsion, they mutually attract or repel each other. Its not that one ...
