Temperatures Affect on Magnetism
Magnetism is when an object has a magnetic force, field, or a pull on another object.Temperature plays a large role in the strength of magnetism, and more importantly how a magnet reacts towards temperature. One can describe temperature as how hot or cold an object is. Temperature is ultimately how fast the molecules in an object are moving. The faster the molecules in an object are moving, the more heated the object becomes. Magnetism is when an object has a magnetic force, field, or a pull on another object. Temperature affects the strength of magnetism.
The property of systems that ultimately determines the direction of heat energy flow when objects are put into contact with each other is known

Internal energy is placed in both atoms and molecules, which makes the atoms and molecules move around. Once the speed of energy changes the molecules’ energy will rise as well (Sullivan, 2007). When temperature increases in the molecules, they begin to move faster, and when the temperature decreases, the molecules move more slowly. They are what hold all energy, which creates the potential heat in an object. The amount of kinetic energy reflects the temperature of the particles that make up a material (Nagel, 2007). Anything that is made of a certain material has kinetic energy, which is the energy of motion. For example, a basketball being bounced has kinetic energy because it is in motion. This property, known as temperature, has many ways to be measured and interpreted and can be described as how hot or cold something an individual is put into contact with …show more content…
Two poles/points are found in each magnet, which is where the magnets strength is used (Magnetism, 2014). A magnet has two poles that determines its strength, and proves it is a magnet by observing its certain features. These certain features include how it reacts to an object, such as metal. A pole is where the magnetic force is directed. For example, the North and South poles attract everything on Earth, qualifying Earth as a large magnet. Types of metals including, iron, cobalt, nickel are all materials that respond to magnetic fields (Hoadley, 2008). The two motions of electrons in atoms are how magnetism is made: first is the movement of electrons surrounding the nucleus, which is comparable to when planets circle around the sun in the solar system; the second one is when the electrons surround its axis, similar to when the Earth rotates around its axis (Lerner, 2008). An example of this is planets orbiting around the Sun. Earth was proven a big magnet that is just really weak. Earth's magnetism is only strong enough to place small magnets such as iron needles permanently but is too weak to affect soft magnet’s noticeability A magnet made up of soft and gentle iron that is demagnetized and has a low resistance of another magnet is a soft magnet. Near the geographic North and South Pole, Earth’s magnetism is at its
