Magnetic Properties of Materials

Magnetic Properties of Materials: All substances whether solid, liquid or gaseous show certain reaction to magnetic fields. On the basis of the reactions shown by them, the substances have been classified under three headings- diamagnetic, paramagnetic and ferromagnetic substances. The general behaviour of these substances in the magnetic fields are briefly described below- Diamagnetic Substances: Diamagnetic …

Magnetic Properties of Solids

Magnetic Properties of Solids: Solids can be classified on the basis of their behaviour towards magnetic filed into following types- Diamagnetic Substances: Diamagnetic Substances are those substances which are weakly repelled by a magnetic field. Example- Ni(Co)4, K4, NaCl. Diamagnetic substances have all their electrons paired, i.e., absence of unpaired electrons so that they possess zero …
