Magnetic Basics

4 Basics Of Magnets

  • Attraction between a magnet and various materials.
  • Direction as it relates to the compass and how electricity can behave like a magnet and its effect on the fields.
  • Visualization of the magnetic poles.
  • Repulsion between two similar poles and how they repel each other.

Intended Use

The user can use a magnet to find out which materials are attracted to the magnet. The use holds down the button and allows electricity to flow through a wire causing deflection of the compass needle. Move a bar magnet under a fully self contained acrylic box with a ferrofluid pond in the bottom. The contained magnets can be pushed from both sides independently to feel the repulsionary forces at work.
