# Magnet pull force Question's

• Rusty69
In summary, a magnet's pull force is the amount of force needed to remove it from the object it is attached to, and is not affected by its rotation in a coil. The strength of a magnet's pull force is dependent on its magnetic field and the properties of the object it is attached to.

Let's say a magnet is attached to an object that weigh's 15 pound's . Then someone attempt's to take the magnet off the object . The object then go's up with the magnet (still being attached to it ) Does that mean the magnet can lift 15 pound's ? Also when a magnet is rotateing through a coil does it's pull force slow it down ( is'nt the magnet pulling the wire ? )? Okay here's my last question, is it true that the stronger the pull force for a magnet the larger the size of it's magnetic field ( am sorry for so many question's I'll try to help answer's other's once I get better in physic's.)?

Simply:

The pull force of a magnet is amount of force needed to remove from the object it is magnetically attracted to. This is a function of how strong its magnetic field is, and the properties of what it is attached to. For instance, a magnet may have a 100 pound pull force on steel, but a 0 pound pull force on aluminum. A generic "pull force" usually refers to some sort of plain steel. A magnet can be assumed to lift an amount of steel up to its pull force, assuming it makes good contact.

The pull force has nothing to do with a magnet in a coil.

## 1. What is magnet pull force?

Magnet pull force is the measure of the strength of attraction or repulsion between two magnets. It is also known as magnetic force or magnetic strength.

## 2. How is magnet pull force measured?

Magnet pull force is measured in units of Newtons (N) or pounds (lbs). It can be measured using a device called a magnetometer, which detects the force between two magnets.

## 3. What factors affect the magnet pull force?

The magnet pull force is affected by several factors, including the strength of the magnets, the distance between them, and the orientation of the magnets relative to each other.

## 4. How does the shape of a magnet affect its pull force?

The shape of a magnet plays a significant role in its pull force. Magnets with larger surface areas, such as bar magnets, have a stronger pull force compared to smaller magnets with the same magnetic strength.

## 5. Can the magnet pull force be increased?

Yes, the magnet pull force can be increased by using stronger magnets, decreasing the distance between them, and aligning them in the most optimal orientation. Adding ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, can also increase the pull force between magnets.
