2. How Permanent Magnets Work?

Permanent magnets work based on the alignment and stability of magnetic domains within the material. Magnetic domains are small regions in the material where atomic magnetic moments are aligned in a specific direction. In an unmagnetized state, these domains have random orientations, resulting in a net magnetic effect of zero.

When a material is magnetized, an external magnetic field aligns these domains in a preferred direction. In permanent magnets, such as those made from ferromagnetic materials like iron, nickel, or cobalt, the alignment of magnetic domains persists even after the external field is removed. This alignment creates a strong and consistent magnetic field within the material.

The key to the longevity of permanent magnets lies in the resistance of these aligned domains to randomizing influences. Factors such as temperature and mechanical shocks can affect the stability of permanent magnets, but their inherent structure allows them to maintain their magnetic properties over time, making them useful in a variety of technological applications.
