8. Magnets & Electromagnets By: Jennifer Hensley

9. History of Magnets • The ancient Greeks and Chinese are credited as the first to find and use a naturally occurring iron ore -magnetite- attracts other materials containing iron. • When stones similar to magnetite, are freely suspended in the air they have a tendency to be in the north and south direction.

10. SI Units • Magnetic field strength unit is the tesla • Unit of total Magnetic Flux is the weber • 1 weber = 1 tesla flowing through 1 square meter • (For a magnetic flux density to equal 1 tesla, a force of 1 newton must act on a wire of 1 meter in length, carrying 1 amp of current)

11. Materials • Magnetic materials are attracted by a magnet, such as iron, steel, nickel, and cobalt (ability to become magnetized). • Nonmagnetic materials such as paper, wood, glass, or tin, which are not attracted by magnets, are considered nonmagnetic and cannot become magnetized. • Natural Magnets are magnetic stones such as those found by the ancient Greeks.

12. Permanent Magnets • When a material is placed into a strong magnetic field and will begin to show a magnetic field of it's own, but also continue to show a magnetic field once removed from the original field. • All magnets have at least two poles one north pole and at one south pole.

13. Electromagnets • The simplest form of an electromagnet, is a wire that has been coiled into one or more loops. This coil is known as a soleniod • If the wire is wrapped around a core it gives off a stronger field and the thicker the core also makes a stronger field • The more wraps of the wire gives greater magnetic force

14. Pros and Cons • Permanent magnets do not rely upon outside influences to generate their magnetic field. • Electromagnets rely upon electric current to generate a magnetic field, when the current increases, so does the field. • In applications where a variable magnetic field is not required, permanent magnets are generally superior. • Permanent magnets can be manufactured to produce stronger fields than any electromagnet of similar size.
