Introduction Of Magnetism

Magnetism of Class 10

It was seen that certain ores could attract bits of iron and they always pointed in a particular direction when suspended freely. These ores were named as Magnetite.

This property of attracting small pieces of iron is referred to as Magnetism.

Therefore, a magnet is a substance, which has both attractive and directive properties. Magnet is also known as Lodestone and it is chemically the oxide of iron (Fe3O4).
