Just so, which shape of magnet is the strongest?
Horseshoe Magnets It is made by bending a regular bar magnet intoahorseshoe shape. The strongest part of amagnetis concentrated at the poles. That is why a horseshoeshapeis considered the strongest and can be veryuseful to createif you want to lift heavy objects or want to makea bar magnetstronger.
are bigger magnets stronger than small ones? The short answer is yes, but only because the size ofamagnet means that there are proportionally more domainsthatcan align and produce a stronger magnetic fieldthana smaller piece of the samematerial.
Accordingly, does adding more magnets make it stronger?
By adding one magnet on to the other,e.g.stacking, the stacked magnets will work as onebiggermagnet and will exert a greater magnetic performance.Asmore magnets are stacked together, the strengthwillincrease until the length of the stack is equal tothediameter.
Do all materials have magnetic domains?
Magnetic domains are always presentinferromagnetic materials due to the way the atoms bondtoform the material. However, when a ferromagneticmaterialis in the unmagnetized condition, the magneticdomainsare randomly oriented so that the magneticfieldstrength in the piece of material is zero.
