 The flashcards below were created by user angeleenie70 on FreezingBlue Flashcards. How are magnets made? Natural magnets: rocks containing iron naturally magnetic Temporary magnets: uses soft iron, made by stroking with a magnet OR wrapping with a wire (electromagnet) Permanent magnet: uses hard iron, made by stroking with a magnet a lot OR holding it really close to a strong magnet (electromagnet) What makes something magnetic? by making the domains the same direction by stroking What are field lines? imaginary lines that show the magnet's attractive power Describe the connection between electricity and magnetism when electricity flows through a wire, it creates a magnetic field around the wire What effect does a magnet have on a compass? It changes the direction from pole north What effect does a current flowing through a wire have on a compass? Makes the needle run parallel to the wire when an electric current is passing through it What are some of the variables that affect electromagnets? number of coilslength of wiretype of wirenumber of batteriespower in solutionnail or bolt lengthcloseness of wireoverlapping of wiretype of bolt How can you be sure that you are only testing ONE variable at a time while testing your electromagnet? just change one at a time Give a description of the electric motor built in class and what made it spin. (part 1&2) 1. when the bare side of the arms touch the paperclips, electricity flows through the coil2. the coil becomes magnetized - it is repelled by the magnets below it Give a description of the electric motor built in class and what made it spin. (part 3&4) 3. As the coil is repelled, it flips away from the magnets4. whent he coil flips, the insulated side at the arms touch the paperclips - electricity can't flow through the coil and it stops being magnetized Give a description of the electric motor built in class and what made it spin. (part 4&5) 5. The coil is no longer repelled by the magnets. It "falls over" back to its original position.6. The bare sides of the arms touch the paperclips again and the cycle restarts.
