magnetic orientation

Materials science; Magnetics

Determines the magnetic polarity and position of one magnet pole to the other.

magnetic pole

Materials science; Magnetics

An area where the lines of flux are concentrated.

magnetic saturation

Materials science; Magnetics

The maximum amount of magnetic energy that can be absorbed by a magnetic substance.


Materials science; Magnetics

Magnetism is a property of materials that respond to an applied magnetic field. Permanent magnets have persistent magnetic fields caused by ferromagnetism, which is the strongest ...
