Magnetised Iron

In this experiment you will use a piece of iron to find out more about magnetism.

You will use the following materials:

  • Pliers
  • A magnet
  • a long piece of iron
    (For example, you could use a screw, a nail or a knitting needle. It should be as thick as possible, while still being easy to snip through. Also, when coming close to a magnet, it should adhere to it. )

The required materials (found on the left).
