## TL;DR

This video discusses the properties of magnets, including the types of artificial magnets, magnetic materials, and how to find the poles of a magnet.

## Key Insights

• 🧲 Artificial magnets can be made in various shapes, such as bar magnets, shrew magnets, and cylindrical magnets.
• 🏮 Magnetic materials, such as iron, cobalt, and nickel, are attracted to magnets, while materials like paper are not.
• 💈 Magnets have two poles, the North Pole and the South Pole, which attract each other.
• 🧲 Sailors used suspended magnets to find direction.
• 💈 Similar poles of a magnet repel each other, while different poles attract each other.
• 💈 Iron filings are located towards the ends of a bar magnet, where the poles are located.
• 🤢 Bar magnets always point in the North-South direction, making them useful for navigation.

## Transcript

hello friends this video on fun with magnets by eight is brought to you by exam for your calm no hole here from exam so with this we have these towards the end of this lesson so let us quickly look at some of the questions fill in the glands in the following artificial magnets are made in different shapes such as - and - so some of the examples of ...

### Q: What are some examples of artificial magnets?

Artificial magnets can come in shapes such as bar magnets, shrew magnets, and cylindrical magnets.

### Q: Are all materials attracted to magnets?

No, only materials that are magnetic, such as iron, cobalt, and nickel, are attracted to magnets. Paper is not a magnetic material.

### Q: How were magnets used in the past for finding direction?

Sailors would suspend a magnet to find direction, as magnets always align in the north-south direction, helping them navigate.

### Q: How many poles do magnets have?

Magnets have two poles: the North Pole and the South Pole, which have opposite charges and attract each other.

### Q: Are similar poles or different poles attracted to each other?

Similar poles, such as North Pole to North Pole, repel each other, while different poles, like North Pole to South Pole, attract each other.

### Q: Where are the iron filings located on a bar magnet?

The maximum iron filings are seen towards the ends of a bar magnet, where the poles are located.

### Q: Can a compass be used to find east-west direction?

Yes, a compass will always align in the north-south direction. By knowing the North Pole, one can determine the East and West directions.

### Q: Is rubber a magnetic material?

No, rubber is not a magnetic material. It does not get attracted by a magnet.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• Artificial magnets can be made in different shapes, such as bar magnets, shrew magnets, and cylindrical magnets.

• Magnetic materials, such as iron, cobalt, and nickel, are attracted to magnets, while materials like paper are not.

• In the past, sailors used magnets to find direction, as magnets always align in the north-south direction.

• Magnets have two poles: the North Pole and the South Pole.
