Activity Description:

Attraction and Repulsion Between Two Magnets in Playing With Magnets - Class 6 Science Experiment

In this experiment, you will observe the behavior of magnets when they are placed in different orientations. By examining their interactions, you will determine when magnets attract and repel each other.

Required Items:

  • Two similar magnets
  • Paper or notebook for recording observations

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Take two similar magnets.
  2. Place the magnets in four different ways as shown in the diagram (Fig.).
  3. Observe and record your observations for each placement.

Experiment Observations:

Make note of your observations for each placement of the magnets. Here is a possible set of observations:

  • Placement 1: North Pole of Magnet 1 and North Pole of Magnet 2 facing each other. Observation: The magnets repel each other. They push away from each other.
  • Placement 2: North Pole of Magnet 1 and South Pole of Magnet 2 facing each other. Observation: The magnets attract each other. They pull towards each other.
  • Placement 3: South Pole of Magnet 1 and North Pole of Magnet 2 facing each other. Observation: The magnets attract each other. They pull towards each other.
  • Placement 4: South Pole of Magnet 1 and South Pole of Magnet 2 facing each other. Observation: The magnets repel each other. They push away from each other.

Precautions:

  • Ensure that the magnets you use are similar in size and strength for accurate observations.
  • Keep other magnetic objects away from the experiment setup to avoid interference.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Based on the observations, you can conclude the following:

  • Like poles repel each other: When two magnets have their North Poles or South Poles facing each other, they repel and push away from each other.
  • Unlike poles attract each other: When two magnets have opposite poles facing each other, they attract and pull towards each other.

Understanding the behavior of magnets and their interactions is essential in studying magnetism and its applications in various fields.
