Magnets: Permanent and Temporary

General Properties of Magnets

Magnets have two sides called poles, one north
-
seeking (north pole) and one south
-
seeking
(south pole).

Polarized
: The quality of having two opposite magne
tic poles, one north
-
seeking and one south
-
seeking.

Experimentally, it can be observed that

Like poles repel each other

Unlike poles attract each other

Magnets always have two opposite magnetic poles.

Magnetism

Magnetic Force
: Force associated with th
e motion of electric charges.

Magnetic Field
: Disturbance in the region of space surrounding objects in which electric charges are
moving. It is a vector quantity that relates the force exerted on a magnet or a current
-
carrying wire to
the strength of t
he magnet or the size of the current.

Magnetic Flux
: The number of magnetic field lines passing through a given surface area.

First Right
-
Hand Rule
: Method used to determine the direction of the magnetic field around a
current carrying wire.

Magnetic
field near a coil

Solenoid
: A coil of wire with many loops that acts like a magnet when a current is allowed to flow
through it.

Electromagnet
: A current
-
carrying coil with a north and a south pole that is iteslf a magnet.

Second Right
-
Hand Rule
: Met
hod used to determine the direction of the field produced by an
electromagnet.

Ferromagnetic Materials

When you place a piece of iron, nickel or cobalt near a permanent magnet, they become
magnetic.

Ferromagnetism
: The property of a substance by which
it is strongly attracted by a magnet. [It
involves electron spin and alignment of magnetic moments in domains.]

Magnetic Domains

Each electron in an atom acts like a tiny electromagnet.

The magnetic fields of the electrons in a group of neighboring ato
ms combine together to form
“domains.”

Domain
: A small group, usually 10 to 1000 microns, that is formed when the magnetic fields of the
electrons in a group of neighboring atoms combine together.

Forces Caused by Magnetic Fields

.

Forces on
Currents in Magnetic Fields

If you move a current through a wire in a magnetic field, the wire will experience an external
force.

Third Right
-
Hand Rule
: Method used to determine the direction of the force on a current
-
carrying
wire in a magnetic field.

Force on a Current Carrying Wire in a Magnetic Field
:
F = BIL

Galvanometer
: Device used to measure very small currents.

Electric Motor
: Device that converts electrical energy into kinetic energy.

Forces on a Single Charged Particle

Cathode Ray Tube
:

Electron tube that converts electrical signals into a pattern on a screen. It
consists of an electron gun which produces an electron beam that is focused onto and moved across a
luminescent screen by magnetic and/or electric fields.

It forms the basis
of the oscilloscope and TV/computer monitors.
