A magnet that attracts metals

The composition of magnets is iron, cobalt, nickel and other atoms, the internal structure of its atoms is relatively special, and it has a magnetic moment itself. Magnets can generate magnetic fields and have the property of attracting ferromagnetic substances such as iron, nickel, cobalt and other metals.

Types of magnets:

Classified by magnet Shapes:

Magnets can be divided into different categories based on their shapes. Square magnets, tile magnets, special-shaped magnets, cylindrical magnets, ring magnets, disc magnets, bar magnets, magnetic frame magnets etc.

Classified by attributes of magnets:

Those also can be classified according to different magnet attributes. Samarium cobalt magnets, neodymium iron boron magnets ( Strong magnets), ferrite magnets, AlNiCo magnets are 4 different types of permanent magnets.

Classifed by different Industry magnets:

  • Magnetic components
  • Motor magnets
  • Rubber magnets
  • Plastic magnets

Industry magnets constitute a broad category of crucial components utilized across various sectors. Among these are motor magnets, integral to the construction of electric motors and generators. Crafted from materials like neodymium or ferrite, these magnets generate essential magnetic fields for the conversion of electrical energy to mechanical energy. Rubber magnets, on the other hand, are prized for their flexibility and adaptability. Comprising a blend of magnetic powder and rubber or polymer materials, they find applications in diverse industries such as advertising displays, refrigerator magnets, and educational tools. Plastic magnets, incorporating magnetic powders into plastic matrices, offer a unique combination of magnetism and malleability. Their ability to be molded into intricate shapes makes them valuable in industries like automotive, electronics, and consumer goods. In essence, industry magnets encompass a spectrum of magnetic components, each tailored to specific applications, playing a crucial role in advancing innovation and efficiency across a multitude of industrial domains.

Magnets are divided into permanent magnets and soft magnetics.

Permanent magnets are added with strong magnetism, so that the spin of magnetic substances and electron angular momentum are arranged in a fixed direction, and soft magnetics are added with electricity. (It is also a method of adding magnetism) Waiting for the current to remove the soft iron will slowly lose its magnetism.

The midpoint of the bar magnet is suspended with a thin wire. When it is stationary, its two ends will point to the south and north of the earth. The end pointing to the north is called the north pole or N pole, and the end pointing to the south is the guide pole or S. pole.

What are the types of magnets ?

If you imagine the earth as a big magnet, the earth’s magnetic north pole is the compass pole, and the magnetic south pole is the north pole. Between the magnet and the magnet, the magnetic poles with the same name repel each other, and the magnetic poles with the same name attract each other. So the compass repels the south pole, the north needle repels the north pole, and the compass and the north needle attract.

Classification: Magnets can be divided into “permanent magnets” and “non-permanent magnets”. Permanent magnets can be natural products, also known as lodestones, or artificially made. Non-permanent magnets, such as electromagnets, are only magnetic under certain conditions.
