The application of magnets in teaching experiments, such as experiments demonstrating magnetic field lines and magnetic forces
Magnet is one of the experimental tools commonly used in physics teaching, it can be used to demonstrate the experiments of magnetic field lines and magnetic force. Through these experiments, students can personally observe and feel the nature of the magnetic field and the role of force, and further understand and explore the knowledge of magnetism. This article will introduce the application of magnets in teaching experiments, and describe in detail the steps and principles of experiments demonstrating magnetic field lines and magnetic forces.
1. The application of magnets in teaching experiments
Magnets have a variety of applications in teaching physics, the most common of which are experiments that demonstrate magnetic field lines and magnetic forces. Through these experiments, students can intuitively observe the shape of the magnetic field and the function of magnetic force, and deeply understand and master related concepts and principles. In addition, magnets can also be used in other experiments in the laboratory, such as electromagnetic induction experiments, Hall effect experiments, etc.
2. Experiments demonstrating magnetic field lines
The experiment demonstrating magnetic field lines is a common physics teaching experiment, through which the nature and distribution of magnetic fields can be observed and studied intuitively. The following are the steps of a simple magnetic field line experiment:
A small packet of iron filings or magnet pieces
a transparent tape
Place the paper over the magnets, making sure the paper is flat.
Sprinkle iron filings or magnet pieces evenly over the surface of the paper.
Tap the paper lightly to evenly distribute the iron filings or magnet pieces.
Fix the paper on the table, and fix the edges of the paper with transparent tape to prevent iron filings or magnet pieces from flying.
Observe the alignment of the filings or magnet pieces and record your observations.
The magnetic field generated by the magnet can arrange the iron filings or magnet pieces into a specific shape, that is, the magnetic field lines. Magnetic field lines start at the north pole of the magnet, travel through the magnet, and return to the south pole. Magnetic field lines present a shape similar to magnetic field lines in space, which can be depicted by observing the arrangement of iron filings or magnet pieces.
3. Demonstration experiment of magnetic force
The experiment demonstrating magnetism is another common physics teaching experiment where the magnetic effects of magnets can be observed and studied. The following are the steps of a simple magnetism experiment:
Some small metal objects, such as nails, paper clips, etc.
A wooden or plastic board
Lay a wooden or plastic board flat on the table.
Place the magnet on the board and make sure it is stable.
Put metal objects near the magnet and watch how they behave.
Experiment with metal objects in different positions, distances, and angles to see how forces are applied to them.
The magnetic field generated by the magnet will attract or repel nearby metal objects, which is the magnetic force. A magnet has two poles, a north pole and a south pole, with magnetic field lines between them, and the direction of these magnetic field lines is from the north pole to the south pole. When a metal object is close to a magnet, the magnetic field acts on the free electrons in the metal, causing magnetization inside the metal object, thereby forming a magnetic force. Depending on the nature of the magnetic force, metallic objects are attracted or repelled by the magnet, depending on the nature and location of the metallic object.
Through experiments demonstrating magnetic field lines and magnetic forces, students can intuitively observe and study the properties of magnetic fields and the effects of forces. These experiments can help students deeply understand the concepts and principles of magnetism, and develop their observation, experiment and analysis skills. At the same time, through the combination with theoretical knowledge, students can compare and explain the experimental results with related physical models, thereby deepening the understanding and application of magnetic knowledge.
When conducting the above experiments, teachers should guide students to carefully observe the experimental phenomena, raise questions and hypotheses, and analyze and reason through the experimental data to further deepen their understanding of magnetic knowledge. In addition, teachers can also allow students to design experiments by themselves to explore other properties and applications of magnetic fields and magnetism, stimulating their creativity and interest in scientific exploration.
Through experiments on magnetic field lines and magnetic forces, magnets have played an important role in physics teaching, not only helping students master relevant knowledge, but also cultivating their practical ability and scientific thinking. Therefore, the rational use of magnets and corresponding experimental designs in the teaching process will help to improve students' learning effects and interest, and promote their love and exploration of physics.
"Since 2006, we found Mr.Guo and get products from him. We used magnets under the earth for the gas and water pipe industries. We have met no problem. We have been working in very happy ways. We have many cooperation. Every year, we spent time together and sometimes, we invited him to Korea. He is our younger brother. Strongly recommended!!"

"I had email to Mr. Guo for rare earth magnet requirements. They replied my e-mail promptly, and were very professional. Mr. Guo’s team still continues to deliver rare earth magnets to our agreed specifications with a very high quality standard since 2012. His team is very professional and thorough with its work. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend them."
