Magnetism. Physical Science in Action[TM]. Schlessinger Science Library. [Videotape].
Most people know what magnets do. Sometimes they stick together, sometimes they push apart and sometimes they don't do anything at all. But why do magnets act the way they do? Students will learn about the role of atoms in magnetism and why certain substances are magnetic while others are not. They will also discover some of the many ways magnetism is used in our world and learn how to create a electromagnet. Includes lots of real-life examples and demonstrations. One of the 16 volumes in the Physical Science in Action series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science--properties and changes of properties in matter, motions and forces, and transfer of energy.
