Hi Kgaul,

The spelling looks ok to me but I don't know how the Brits spell it but they pronounce it al-u-min'-ium.

Feynman tells us that it has been shown experimentally that aluminum is diamagnetic. So is Bismuth. Aluminum is attracted toward the pointed south pole of a strong electromagnet (direction of ferro magnetic material) while Bismuth is repelled from the south pole.
cheers, Jim
