Magnetic attract magnetic materials but not non-magnetic materials. Magnetism is a non-
contact force (acts at a distance)


- The ability to attract iron and steel. The knowledge of magnetism goes back to the
Ancient Greeks who realized that a certain rock (Iodestone) attracted pieces of iron.
When the hang a piece of this material, it rotates until it is pointing in a north-south
direction of the earth.

- Magnets are named after the town magnesia (a district in Thessaly) in Lydia, Asia Minor
where the Iodestone was mined in ancient times. Natural permanents were called
Lodestone (magnetic, 3 4) after Iodestar (or guiding star). Lodestone was first
permanent magnetic material to be identified and studied. The regions near the ends of
a magnet are called its poles.

Magnetic Materials:




1. Ferromagnetic
- If materials such as cobalt, nickel or iron are put near a magnet they begin to act like
another magnet.
- Ferromagnetic materials are characterized by spontaneous magnetism that exists in the
absence of a magnetic field. They can retain the ability to attract metals (particularly

those belonging to ferrous family) even after the magnetic field that induced magnetism
to it has been removed. Iron is a soft ferromagnetic material. This means it will become

- magnetized very easily, but quickly loses its magnetic properties if the magnetized force
is removed. Steel is more difficult to magnetize, but once it is magnetized, it retains its
magnetic properties for a long time. Steel is called a hard ferromagnetic material.
2. Diamagnetic
- Have the ability to slightly repel magnetic field. Faraday discovers these materials in
1845. He found that bismuth and glass are repelled from magnetic fields.

3. Paramagnetic
- Also discovered by Faraday. He noted that some substances clearly not permanent
magnets are nevertheless attracted by magnetic fields and these materials are named


A magnet is any object that has a magnetic field. It attracts ferrous objects like pieces of iron,
steel, nickel and cobalt. One of the most common magnets - the bar magnet - is a long,
rectangular bar of uniform cross-section that attracts pieces of ferrous objects. The magnetic
compass needle is also commonly used. The compass needle is a tiny magnet which is free to
move horizontally on a pivot. One end of the compass needle points in the North direction and
the other end points in the South direction.

The end of a freely pivoted magnet will always point in the North-South direction. The end that
points in the North is called the North Pole of the magnet and the end that points South is
called the South Pole of the magnet. It has been proven by experiments that like magnetic
poles repel each other whereas unlike poles attract each other.

The region around a magnet where a magnetic force can be felt is called the magnetic

Magnetic field is the space surrounding a magnet, in which magnetic force is exerted. If a bar
magnet is placed in such a field, it will experience magnetic force. However, the field will
continue to exist even if the magnet is removed. The direction of magnetic field at a point is the
direction of the resultant force acting on a hypothetical North Pole placed at that point.

A magnetic field around a bar magnet has a shape and direction.

The magnetic field is represented using magnetic field lines (lines of force , flux lines) that show
the shape, direction and strength of the field.


When current flows in a wire, a magnetic field is created around the wire. From this it has been
inferred that magnetic fields are produced by the motion of electrical charges. A magnetic field
of a bar magnet thus results from the motion of negatively charged electrons in the magnet.

Magnetic fields are produced by electric currents, which can be macroscopic currents in wires,
or microscopic currents associated with electrons in atomic orbits. The magnetic field () is
defined in terms of force on moving charge in the Lorentz force law. The interaction of
magnetic field with charge leads to many practical applications. Magnetic field sources are
essentially dipolar in nature, having a north and south magnetic pole.

It is given by the flux passing per unit area through a plane at right angles to the flux. It
is measured in Wb/2

= = H = H

Direction of the magnetic field at any point is defined as the direction of motion of a change
particle on which the magnetic field would not exert force.

Magnitude of the magnetic field vector is proportional to the force acting on the moving
charge, the magnitude of its velocity and the angle between velocity and magnetic field. Unit is
the Tesla or Gauss

Just as an electric field is described by drawing the electric lines of force, in the same way, a
magnetic field is described by drawing the magnetic lines of force. When a small north
magnetic pole is placed in the magnetic field created by a magnet, it will experience a force.
And if the North Pole is free, it will move under the influence of magnetic field. The path traced
by a North magnetic pole free to move under the influence of a magnetic field is called a
magnetic line of force. In other words, the magnetic lines of force are the lines drawn in a
magnetic field along which a north magnetic pole would move.

The direction of a magnetic line of force at any point gives the direction of the magnetic force
on a north pole placed at that point. Since the direction of magnetic line of force is the direction
of force on a North Pole, so the magnetic lines of force always begin on the N-pole of a magnet
and end on the S-pole of the magnet. A small magnetic compass when moved along a line of
force always sets itself along the line tangential to it. So, a line drawn from the South Pole of
the compass to its North Pole indicates the direction of the magnetic field.

Properties of the magnetic lines of force

The magnetic lines of force originate from the North Pole of a magnet and end at its
South Pole.
The magnetic lines of force come closer to one another near the poles of a magnet but
they are widely separated at other places.
The magnetic lines of force do not intersect (or cross) one another.

When a magnetic compass is placed at different points on a magnetic line of force, it aligns
itself along the tangent to the line of force at that point.

of the medium called its permeability. Every medium is supposed to possess two

The magnetic force on a charged particle depends on the relative orientation of the
particle's velocity and the magnetic field.
A magnetic force cannot change the speed of a charged particle, only its direction.
When a charged particle enters a uniform magnetic field in a direction perpendicular to
that field, its motion is continuously changed by the magnetic force
A current consists of many small charged particles running through a wire. If immersed
in a magnetic field, the particles will be experience a force; they can transmit this force
to the wire through which they travel.

decreased due to the two fields there being in the opposition to each other. Hence, the
two conductors are attached towards each other.

field (B)
2. The magnitude of the force F=qvBsin where is the angle<180 degrees between the

Whenever, a current carrying conductor comes under a magnetic field, there will be force
acting on the conductor and on the other hand, if a conductor is forcefully brought under a
magnetic field, there will be an induced current in that conductor. In both of the phenomenons,
there is a relation between magnetic field, current and force. This relation is directionally
determined by Fleming Left Hand rule and Fleming Right Hand rule respectively. 'Directionally'
means these rules do not show the magnitude but show the direction of any of the three
parameters (magnetic field, current, force) if the direction of other two are known. Fleming Left
Hand rule is mainly applicable for electric motor and Fleming Right Hand rule is mainly
applicable for electric generator. In late 19th century, John Ambrose Fleming introduced both
these rules and as per his name, the rules are well known as Fleming left and right hand rule

Fleming Left Hand rule

It is found that whenever a current carrying conductor is placed inside a magnetic field, a force
acts on the conductor, in a direction perpendicular to both the directions of the current and the
magnetic field. In the figure it is shown that, a portion of a conductor of length L placed
vertically in a uniform horizontal magnetic field strength H, produced by two magnetic poles N
and S. If i is the current flowing through this conductor, the magnitude of the force acts on the
conductor is, F = BIL

Fleming Right Hand rule

As per Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction, whenever a conductor moves inside a

magnetic field, there will be an induced current in it. If this conductor gets forcefully moved
inside the magnetic field, there will be a relation between the direction of applied force,
magnetic field and the current. This relation among these three directions is determined by
Fleming Right Hand Rule This rule states "Hold out the right hand with the first finger, second
finger and thumb at right angle to each other. If forefinger represents the direction of the line
of force, the thumb points in the direction of motion or applied force, then second finger points
in the direction of the induced current.

When a current carrying loop is placed across a magnetic field, it has the tendency to be
rotated either clockwise or counter-clockwise dependent on the direction of the magnetic field
and the current. Its direction of rotation is determined using the right hand rule.

Before considering the mathematical nature of the forces on currents in magnetic fields it is
worth just looking at the simple magnetic field diagrams that give rise to these effects. These
are shown in Figure 1. (a) is the field between two magnets, (b) the field due to a current in a
straight wire and (c) the resulting field if they are put together. This last field is known as the
"catapult" field because it tends to catapult the wire out of the field in the direction shown by
the arrow.

The energy stored in a magnetic field is equal to the work needed to produce a current through
the inductor.

When a conductor carries a current, a magnetic field surrounding the conductor is produced.
The resulting magnetic flux is proportional to the current. If the current changes, the change in
magnetic flux is proportional to the time-rate of change in current by a factor called inductance
(L). Since nature abhors rapid change, a voltage (electromotive force, EMF) produced in the
conductor opposes the change in current, which is also proportional to the change in magnetic
flux. Thus, inductors oppose change in current by producing a voltage that,in turn, creates a
current to oppose the change in magnetic flux; the voltage is proportional to the change in

Due to energy conservation, the energy needed to drive the original current must have an
outlet. For an inductor, that outlet is the magnetic fieldthe energy stored by an inductor is
equal to the work needed to produce a current through the inductor.
