5G30.11 Ferromagnetism, Paramagnetism & Diamagnetism Aluminum is paramagnetic. Tie a string to the short aluminum cylinder from density samples box. Lower it between poles of the variable space magnets. The cylinder will line up along a line connecting the poles of the magnets. To demonstrate diamagnetism tie a sting to the carbon cylinder in the density sample box. Lower between the poles of the magnet. The cylinder lines up perpendicular to a line connecting the poles of the magnets. Ferromagnetism can be demonstrated using iron sample. For a puzzle try suspending a copper sample between the poles of the magnets. Picture: Not available Setup: Minimal Equations: None Safety Issues: None unless you have medical implants that could be affected by strong magnets.
