PHY150 JMS/2019 1 CHAPTER 6: MAGNET & MAGNETISM 6.1 The Modern Theory of Magnetism Magnetism in matter is currently believed to result from the movement of electrons in the atoms of substances. The magnetic polarity of atoms is thought to arise primarily from the spin of electrons about their own axis and partially due to their orbital motions around the nucleus. The atoms in a magnetic material are grouped into microscopic magnetic regions called domains. In this domain, all the atoms are believed to be magnetically polarized along a crystal axis. In unmagnetized material, these domains are oriented in random direction. a) unmagnetized material b) magnetized material 6.2 Magnetic Field A magnetic field is a space around a magnetic material in which a charged particle will be exerted by a magnetic force.

PHY150 JMS/2019 2 Magnetic field is represented by magnetic field lines. A magnetic field line has direction and its strength is indicated by the concentration of field lines. The higher the concentration of field lines, the stronger is the magnetic field. The magnetic flux density B is a measure of the strength of magnetic field at a point. It is a vector quantity also known as magnetic field strength. Its unit is weber per square meter (Wb m -2 ). 1 Wb m -2 = 1 tesla (T). 1 T = 10 -4 gauss (G) The direction of the magnetic field at a given location is the direction in which the north pole of a compass points when placed at that location. S N Magnetic field lines exit from the north pole of a magnet and enter at the south pole. The field lines continue even

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
