Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
Bellringer
Given the following objects, a piece of aluminum
foil, a nickel, a plastic figure, a piece of
wood, a glass vase, and some paper clips, predict
which objects will be attracted to a magnet. How
do you know? Record your answers in your
science journal.

Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
Objectives
• Describe the properties of magnets.
• Explain why some materials are magnetic and some
are not.
• Describe four kinds of magnets.
• Give two examples of the effect of Earths
magnetic field.

Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
Properties of Magnets
• Magnetic Poles are points on a magnet that have
opposite magnetic qualities.
• North and South The pole of a magnet that
points to the north is called the magnets north
pole. The opposite end of the magnet, called the
south pole, points to the south.

Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
Properties of Magnets, continued
• Magnetic Forces When you bring two magnets
close together, the magnets each exert a magnetic
force on the other. These magnetic forces result
from spinning electric charges in the magnets.
The force can either push the magnets apart of
pull them together.

Properties of Magnets, continued
• Magnetic Fields A magnetic field exists in the
region around a magnet in which magnetic forces
can act.

8
Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
The Cause of Magnetism
• Atoms and Domains In materials such as iron,
nickel, and cobalt, groups of atoms are in tiny
areas called domains. The north and south poles
of the atoms in a domain line up and make a
strong magnetic field.

9
Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
The Cause of Magnetism, continued
• Losing Alignment When domains move, the magnet
is demagnetized, or loses its magnetic
properties.
• Making Magnets You can make a magnet from
demagnetized material if you line up its domains
with another magnet.

Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
The Cause of Magnetism, continued
• Cutting a Magnet When you cut a magnet in half,
you end up with two magnets.

11
Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
Kinds of Magnets
• Atoms and Domains Some magnets, called
ferromagnets, are made of iron, nickel, cobalt,
or mixtures of those metals. Another kind of
magnet is the electromagnet. This is a magnet
made by an electric current.
• Temporary and Permanent Magnets Temporary
magnets are made from materials that are easy to
magnetize. But they tend to lose their
magnetization easily. Permanent magnets are
difficult to magnetize, but tend to keep their
magnetic properties longer.

12
Section 1 Magnets and Magnetism
Earth as a Magnet
• One Giant Magnet Earth behaves as if it has a
bar magnet running through its center.
• Poles of a Compass Needle The point of a
compass needle is attracted to the south pole of
a magnet. Opposite poles of magnets attract each
other.
• South Magnetic Pole near North Geographic Pole
A compass needle points north because the
magnetic pole of Earth that is closest to the
geographic North Pole is a magnetic south pole.

Earth as a Magnet, continued
• The Core of the Matter Scientists think that
the Earths magnetic field is made by the
movement of electric charges in the Earths core.
• A Magnetic Light Show Earths magnetic field
plays a part in making auroras. An aurora is
formed when charged particles from the sun hit
oxygen and nitrogen atoms in the air.

Bellringer
Suppose you had a machine that could levitate
heavy objects with the flick of a switch. Write a
paragraph in your science journal about how this
machine would make your life easier.
17
Section 2 Magnetism from Electricity
Objectives
• Identify the relationship between an electric
current and a magnetic field.
• Compare solenoids and electromagnets.
• Describe how electromagnetism is involved in the
operation of doorbells, electric motors, and
galvanometers.

18
Section 2 Magnetism from Electricity
The Discovery of Electromagnetism
• Hans Christian Oersted Danish physicist Hans
Christian Oersted discovered the relationship
between electricity and magnetism in 1820.
• More Research From his experiments, Oersted
concluded that an electric current produces a
magnetic field. His research was the first
research in electromagnetismthe interaction
between electricity and magnetism.

Section 2 Magnetism from Electricity
Using Electromagnetism
• A solenoid is a coil of wire that produces a
magnetic field when carrying an electric current.
• An electromagnet is made up of a solenoid
wrapped around an iron core.
• Turning Electromagnets On and Off
Electromagnets are very useful because they can
be turned on and off as needed. The solenoid has
a field only when there is electric current in
it.

21
Section 2 Magnetism from Electricity
Applications of Electromagnetism
• Doorbells Two solenoids in a doorbell allow the
doorbell to work.
• Magnetic Force and Electric Current An electric
current can cause a compass needle to move. The
needle is a small magnet. This property is useful
in electric motors.

22
Section 2 Magnetism from Electricity
Applications of Electromagnetism, continued
• An electric motor is a device that changes
electrical energy into mechanical energy. All
electric motors have an armaturea loop or coil
of wire that can rotate.
• Galvanometers A galvanometer measures current.
A galvanometer has an electromagnet placed
between the poles of a permanent magnet.

Have you ever discovered something by accident?
Maybe you looked in a dictionary for the
definition of an unknown word, only to find the
definition of another word you didnt know.
Write a short paragraph in your science journal
describing how you have discovered something by
accident.
25
Section 3 Electricity from Magnetism
Objectives
• Explain how a magnetic field can make an
electric current.
• Explain how electromagnetic induction is used in
a generator.
• Compare step-up and step-down transformers.

Section 3 Electricity from Magnetism
Electric Current from a Changing Magnetic Field
an experiment trying to get the magnetic field of
the electromagnet to make an electric current in
a second wire.

27
Section 3 Electricity from Magnetism
Electric Current from a Changing Magnetic Field,
continued
• Success for an Instant Faraday realized that
electric current in the second wire was made only
when the magnetic field was changing. The process
by which an electric current is made by changing
a magnetic field is called electromagnetic
induction.
• Inducing Electric Current Look at the next
slide to see electromagnetic induction.

Electric Generators
• Alternating Current The electric current
produced by the generator shown on the next
slide changes direction each time the coil makes
a half turn. Because the electric current
changes direction, it is an alternating current.
• Generating Electrical Energy The energy that
generators convert into electrical energy comes
from different sources such as fossil fuels and
nuclear energy.

Transformers
• A transformer increases or decreases the voltage
of alternating current.
• Step Up, Step Down The number of loops in the
primary and secondary coils of a transformer
determines whether it increases or decreases the
voltage.
• Electrical Energy for Your Home The electric
current that brings electrical energy to your
home is usually transformed three times.
