Magnets can be called strange elements of nature. Although there is enough information about magnets, scientists still think that there are unknown facts about magnets. Some of the unknown facts have already been resolved by researchers and scientists. Below we will talk about some facts that we think are interesting about magnets.
Some Incredible Facts About Magnets
There are magnets strong enough to turn metals into magnets. However, these magnets are very rare. Ferromagnetic materials containing iron can be easily magnetized with the help of such powerful magnets. To transfer magnetic properties to metal, all you have to do is rub them together. It can be observed that the metal attracts magnetic objects easily.
Speaking of magnets, did you know that Earth is like a big magnetic ball? The Earth has two magnetic poles, north and south. However, magnetic poles are different from the geographical North and South Pole. There are invisible magnetic lines extending from poles to poles.
Did you know that there are animals that are affected by magnets? In other words, many animals can detect magnetic fields, and so magnets are used to study migration cycles, bee communication patterns, and many different behavior patterns of animals.
Magnets are ancient elements of nature. It is known that they existed since the formation of the world. It is believed that the Chinese use cargo stones for navigation.
There are magnetic hills that are said to attract large magnetic objects such as cars. These magnetic peaks are located in certain places. There is, however, a debate that these are not actually magnetic peaks, but a topographic illusion.
Magnetar is the most powerful magnet in the universe. When the stars die, supernova explosions happen, and all that’s left is magnetos. These magicians are strong enough to destroy the entire planet as they approach. According to scientists, there are only a few of them in the universe and they are far from the earth.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging machines use magnets to produce stronger magnetic fields from Earth. To be clearer, the magnetic field produced by these machines is 60,000 times stronger than Earth’s magnetic field.
After examining the surprising facts about the magnets listed above, it can be concluded that the magnets are really interesting and also the strangest elements in the world.
