One more magnet experiment – making a paper clip hover

Previously we searched for steel balls and studied magnetic lines (LISÄÄ LINKKI, KUN SE MAGNEETTI JULKAISTAAN). I wanted to return to the topic and demonstrate that magnets assert an effect on a wider area than their own size, so we played with a paper clip and made it hover. For this experiment you need: a … Continue reading One more magnet experiment – making a paper clip hover

Opening up the world of magnetism

Electricity and magnetism are interrelated phenomena named electromagnetism. Electrically charged particles create a magnetic field around them and magnets can create electricity by moving electrons around in objects near them. This phenomenon is utilised f.ex. in generators and wind turbines. In these experiments no electricity is made, but at some point we will build a … Continue reading Opening up the world of magnetism
