Magnetic properties of silver steel

In summary, the saturation flux of silver steel, which contains 1% carbon and up to 0.4% chromium, is expected to be similar to other high carbon steels. However, its magnetic properties may depend on heat treatment and hardness. Further details and testing can be found in the provided link.

Hi,

A straight question here, no complicated quantum theory equations for this, I just want to know a piece of data.

What is the saturation flux of silver steel?

It has a fraction of a percent of chromium in it, so was wondering if it was less than carbon steel's ~1.6T?

Thanks for looking up some detail there, I agree that it should be similar to other high carbon steel, assuming it is mostly body centered cubic.
 

Related to Magnetic properties of silver steel

1. What is silver steel?

Silver steel, also known as tool steel or high-speed steel, is a type of steel that contains a high amount of carbon and other alloying elements such as chromium, tungsten, and vanadium. It has excellent hardness, wear resistance, and toughness, making it suitable for use in tools and machinery.

2. What are the magnetic properties of silver steel?

Silver steel is considered to be a ferromagnetic material, meaning it can be magnetized and retains its magnetism even after the external magnetic field is removed. It has a relatively high magnetic permeability and is attracted to magnets.

3. How does the carbon content affect the magnetic properties of silver steel?

The carbon content in silver steel has a significant impact on its magnetic properties. Higher carbon content results in increased hardness and magnetic permeability, making the steel more magnetic. On the other hand, lower carbon content decreases the magnetic properties of silver steel.

4. Can the magnetic properties of silver steel be altered?

Yes, the magnetic properties of silver steel can be altered through heat treatment processes such as annealing, hardening, and tempering. These processes can change the microstructure of the steel, affecting its magnetic properties.

5. What are the applications of silver steel's magnetic properties?

The magnetic properties of silver steel make it useful in many applications, such as in the production of magnetic cores for electrical transformers, motors, and generators. It is also used in magnetic bearings, sensors, and other precision instruments that require high magnetic permeability and stability.
