Force between magnets


We all know that like poles of magnets repel each other and we see application of this fact in Magnetic Levitation Trains. But can this force of repulsion be measured?
In this unit, we will try to quantify the amount of magnetic force between two magnets. This unit can help the students get an idea of how to collect, represent and analyse data in a systematic manner.

Materials Required

2 ferrite magnets, Two 15 cm plastic rulers, Weighing scale (Maximum weighing limit – 1 kg), card board, punching machine, Permanent Glue, retort stand.
