Simple, just turn off the magnet.

electromagnetic god.
no wires in picture.

You failed, electromagnets need electricity to function, otherwise they're just expensive pieces of various metals.
#231 to #165 - gjsmothefirst (01/18/2013) [-]
Actually, the forces "electric" and "magnetism" are one and the same. This is taught in high school physics.

Please, know the difference between electromagnets and electromagnetism. Electromagnets are coils of wire arranged so as to create an (electro)magnetic field when electricity is passed through them. Electromagnetism is a force which applies to all thing electronic and/or magnetic.
#332 to #231 - alexanderh (01/19/2013) [-]
I haven't had high school level physics, nor will I ever. I chose something else that interests me more. Guess I was wrong. Still, I would have left out "electro", just to avoid any confusion.
#333 to #332 - gjsmothefirst (01/19/2013) [-]
Hmm. Well, TBH then you shouldn't start talking about something which you even said you don't know about. It's not wrong in the slightest, but you certainly are.
#336 to #333 - alexanderh (01/19/2013) [-]
It sounded to me like he was wrong, I pointed it out, and was corrected. I admitted that he was right, but said that it wasn't necessarily common knowledge.
#180 to #165 - anonymous (01/18/2013) [-]
You are mixing two things. These are (or were) magnet because there is a north and a south pole.
You can create a magnetic field with wires, and doping this "magnet" by placing a piece of iron inside.
#184 to #180 - alexanderh (01/18/2013) [-]
Still not electromagnets. He could have left the "electro" out, and I wouldn't have said anyting.
#174 to #165 - posidonsaurus (01/18/2013) [-]
durr the force of magnetism falls in the class of the electromagnetic fundamental force
#183 to #174 - alexanderh (01/18/2013) [-]
Still not electromagnets.
User avatar #168 to #165 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
we're learning about electromagnetics in electronics, thats why i said it
#170 to #168 - alexanderh (01/18/2013) [-]
Doesn't make it any less wrong. In fact, because you're learning about them, means that you should know the difference, and not make that mistake in the first place.
#205 to #170 - anonymous (01/18/2013) [-]
you guys are totaly talking in wronge directions... one is talking about electromagnetics - the subject about the fundamental bound between electricism and the magnetic influence it causes and the other is talking about the use of an electric device to cause magnetism...
#220 to #205 - alexanderh (01/18/2013) [-]
Seems that way. Still, having a picture of magnets, and using the term electromagnetic is either plain wrong, or not something the general public would know is right. And when it's posted to the general public for them to enjoy, you should cater to what the majority understands.
User avatar #164 - sixfootfive (01/18/2013) [-]
How about this.

The combined force of attraction between two south poles to a nearby north pole is strong enough to negate the force of repulsion caused by placing the south poles right next to each other.

Repeat and reverse poles for north.
#172 to #164 - anonymous (01/18/2013) [-]
nope. You could find another solution where the energy of the system would be lower, like a triangle with the north pole in the center.
User avatar #167 to #164 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
if the poles are at 99.99% equal strength, and strength of the bond is determined by distance and the magnet, the opposite poles would never be strong enough.
User avatar #169 to #167 - sixfootfive (01/18/2013) [-]
Yeah, I knew it was a long shot when I posted it.

Check out the anon under this comment, I think (s)he's got it.
#163 - anonymous (01/18/2013) [-]
If you heat a magnet or you shake it in your hand quite fast (both are the same you just need to create enough agitation), the magnetization will get to 0.

For the temperature, it's called the Curie temperature.

The signs aren't correctly written?
User avatar #156 to #140 - rebby (01/18/2013) [-]
but then itd still be the same problem
if they all had incorrect signs they still wouldnt attract
unless every other magnet had incorrect signs
User avatar #158 to #156 - unkownthous (01/18/2013) [-]
Yeah, i didn't really think too much of what i type the first time, but there is reply a few posts that i said on one side the magnets are rigged.
User avatar #147 to #140 - dammriver ONLINE (01/18/2013) [-]
Nope... Opposites attract.
User avatar #148 to #147 - unkownthous (01/18/2013) [-]
Yes, but maybe all the magnets on the left side are incorrect and need to be flipped, or vise versa.
User avatar #151 to #148 - dammriver ONLINE (01/18/2013) [-]
I'm just saying that the letters aren't right. A lot could affect magnetism... Even if they were just hit hard enough.
User avatar #138 - rebby (01/18/2013) [-]
maybe theyre not actually magnetic and theyre just fake
User avatar #139 to #138 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
I doubt our electronics teacher would buy fake magnets for us to use.
User avatar #142 to #139 - rebby (01/18/2013) [-]
i cant work off information i was never given
User avatar #141 to #139 - rebby (01/18/2013) [-]
that was never specified

well now knowing theyre most likely legit magnets it would be harder to figure it out
User avatar #133 - isradam (01/18/2013) [-]
Their magnetic fields could be jumbled up. We do not know the strength of these magnets, they could be attracted to the pole diagonal to them. Maybe... I dunno.

Its a gay magnet they attract to the same poles
User avatar #116 - thenameschuck (01/18/2013) [-]
Lol they are probably like knock off magnets that arent magnetic

Demagnetized magnets?
Demagnetized magnets?
User avatar #112 to #111 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
they were attracted to the wrong poles.
User avatar #113 to #112 - thedarkestrogue (01/18/2013) [-]
Who says they were attracted? If they were demagnetized they could just be placed next to each other. They're essentially just metal at that point.
User avatar #114 to #113 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
well being that i put them together and saw them pull toward each other north to north..
User avatar #135 to #114 - thedarkestrogue (01/18/2013) [-]
Where did you find them? Chances are wherever you got them, they were already demagnetized then. Or they could just have their N and S labels wrong.
User avatar #136 to #135 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
they were just standard magnets from a package that our electronics teacher bought. they were meant for educational use.
User avatar #149 to #136 - thedarkestrogue (01/18/2013) [-]
that is why. Educational use magnets are terrible. They're usually low quality. My teacher bought a 10 pack and none of them were properly magnetized. They lost their pull within two days.
User avatar #150 to #149 - garymotherfinoak (01/18/2013) [-]
they were bought for educational use, not designed for it. there was a set of magnets out as well that were from a couple years ago but from the same model, and still had good tug.
User avatar #152 to #150 - thedarkestrogue (01/18/2013) [-]

Then you divided by zero, simple as that.
