Magnetism push and pull

 
Magnetic Pulling and Pushing

Materials you will need:

• Water
• A Bowl
• Two Needle-Magnets
• Small Pieces of Paper or Flat Pieces of Cork
 

Magnets behave in surprising ways when you put them together.  

To see how magnets react together; rest two needle-magnets (see Make Needle-Magnets Experiment) on small pieces of paper in a bowl of water.  Watch how they pull and push.

Steps :

1.  Place each needle on a pieces of paper and float them side by side (with one point and one eye next to each other.  

What happened to the needles?

2.  Next, place the needles so that both eyes are side by side.  What happened this time?

Magnets have two ends (or poles).  

If you put the poles of two magnets together, they will either pull together or push apart.  

Magnets will pull (attract) each other if the poles are different.  

This invisible pull is called a magnetic force.  Magnets will push (repel) each other if the poles are the same.  

This magnetic forces pulles against you.
