Most of us aren’t aware of what an incredible tool a magnet is–we only use them for hanging pictures on our refrigerator. But as it turns out, magnets can be used for some very awesome life hacks as well–including one inside the fridge!
Magnets are fascinating objects that have the ability to attract certain materials like iron, nickel, and cobalt. They work because of the special properties of certain elements, such as iron, which has tiny magnetic particles called atoms. Inside each atom, there are even smaller particles called electrons that spin around the nucleus. When the electrons in the atoms are aligned in the same direction, they create a magnetic field. This alignment happens naturally in some materials, like iron, making them magnetic.
When you bring two magnets close together, their magnetic fields interact with each other. The most common type of magnet has two ends called poles, known as the North Pole and the South Pole. Similar poles, such as two North Poles or two South Poles, repel each other and push away. However, opposite poles, like a North Pole and a South Pole, attract each other and pull together.
The attraction or repulsion between magnets occurs because of the magnetic field lines. These invisible lines flow from the North Pole of a magnet to the South Pole. When the field lines from one magnet intersect with the field lines from another magnet, they create a force that either pulls the magnets together or pushes them apart. This phenomenon, known as magnetism, is the reason why magnets stick to metal objects, and it has various practical applications in our daily lives, from compasses to electric motors.
