Hi there,

Are you looking for a macroscopic effect on matter? If so, it really depends on the magnetic type of matter.

If you are looking for an atomic explanation, I would be glad to help you, but you need to let me know first.

Cheers

The material will become magnetized, which is an alignment of atomic or molecular dipole moments in the material. For iron, this magnetization can be very large.
The magnetization of the material will usually increase the internal and external magnetic fields.
