How Liquid Impacts a Magnet Science Experiment

  1. What if a needle was struck and gets stock inside my leg and goes 2 inches deep? Can i use a magnet to get it out so i won't go under a surgery? (it happened to my friend, i was thinking of using a magnet to get it out. Is it possible?)

  2. it's about the concentration of fluid that affects the movement of paper clips when moving because there is friction on the body of the paper clip with the liquid. no effect on the magnetic field. one that can affect the magnetic field is heat.

  3. The magnet is basically pulling it as if i were pulling something with my hand. I would have a harder time pulling any object including the weight of my own arm and hand through corn syrup rather that water. Everyone is saying viscosity; I'm assuming that is a fancy word for "Drag"

  4. The liquids have different magnetic permeability, this means that some liquids are can allow magnetic forces to form inside them while others cannot.Another factor is the density of the liquids which make the paperclips move at different speeds if traveling through/in different liquids.I think, I'm only in Grade 6 so if somebody could correct me that would be awesome 🙂

  5. The one on the right has higher viscosity, more friction giving you a harder time. Thats why when you dropped them in they floated at the top and you had to push it, in order for it to slowly fall to the bottom. Our keyword is slowly, a stronger magnet would give you less frustrating result.

  6. Actually viscosity has nothing to do with the magnetic flux. Only the paper clips are affected, not the magnetic field. Viscosity affects more for mass in this case (as mas is affected by the medium). GG!

  7. cauz Corn syrup is more denser than water its not attracting faster and water is denser than oil so clips attracted more faster in of oil than water but look same speed. And to guess perfectly which is denser more is by the quality of transparency of liquid. There Cron syrup was more transparent than of Water. So Corn syrup is more denser than of Water…….
