    • Understanding more complex substances is the key to designing materials for stronger magnets in order to build more efficient and powerful electrical generators and motors.
    • Iron, cobalt and nickel are the best known metallic magnets, and their magnetic properties are governed by the conduction electrons that are free to move throughout the metal.
    • Samarium-cobalt magnets retain their magnetic properties at high temperatures and are not very reactive.
    • The main component of the Sun's magnetic field is similar to a bar magnet, with a positive pole and a negative pole.
    • Ferroelectric materials can create an electric field the way iron magnets create a magnetic field.
    • If you have a mixture of salt and tiny pieces of iron, you could use a magnet to separate the iron from the mixture.
    • At a synchrotron radiation source, electrons emit radiation as they are guided by magnets around a storage ring.
    • A spinning superconductor acts like a very weak magnet, with the poles of the magnet precisely aligned with the axis of the spin.
    • Some of the bottles are equipped with external magnets by which a viewer can manipulate the trapped shapes.
    • To complete the magnet, the coils were encased in an iron yoke then wrapped in a 40-millimeter-thick aluminum shell.
    • When a paramagnetic material is placed in a strong magnetic field, it becomes a magnet, and as long as the strong magnetic field is present, it will attract and repel other magnets in the usual way.
    • Three workers, migrants from rural areas, are retrieving waste iron using a magnet on the end of a bamboo pole.
    • Hutter spinels are strongly magnetic and can be separated from crushed samples of the rock with a hand magnet.
    • The spinning protons in the hydrogen nuclei act like tiny magnets and align their spins with or against the magnetic field.
    • When you picked up the clip with the magnet the clip was accelerated toward the magnet acquiring kinetic energy.
    • Now water contains hydrogen atoms, and the nucleus of a hydrogen atom is a tiny magnet.
    • You effectively have a tiny current going around, and when you have a current like that you have a magnetic field - the electron becomes a tiny magnet.
    • Motors, relays, generators, or simply other magnets or magnetic materials, can all also cause the pointer to move, overpowering the Earth's magnetism.
    • A magnet cannot attract iron, when deeply embedded in mud.
    • The bar magnet gets its overall magnetization because all of these little component magnets are pointing in the same direction, and add up for an overall effect.
