- Only some materials are magnetic, which means they are attracted to magnets. The most common material is iron.
- Most magnets are made from iron alloys, which are a mixture of iron and other metals.
- The area around a magnet where its magnetic force can be felt is called its magnetic field.
- The Earth’s magnetic poles move around as the years pass. That means that magnetic compasses point in a slightly different direction each year. You have to be aware of this when you are finding your way with a compass.
- The first compasses were called lodestones. They were made with lumps of magnetic rocks.
- An electromagnet is a magnet made by sending an electric current through a coil of wire.
- In a Maglev railway, the trains are supported above the track by super-powerful electromagnets. Magnets also propel the train.
