What does not use an electromagnet?
Therefore the correct answer is D, electric-heaters don’t require electromagnets for generating heat, rather the other mentioned appliances require electromagnets.
What makes an electromagnet useful?
Electromagnets create a magnetic field through the application of electricity. This creates a magnetic field around the coiled wire, magnetizing the metal as if it were a permanent magnet. Electromagnets are useful because you can turn the magnet on and off by completing or interrupting the circuit, respectively.
Why steel is not used for making electromagnet?
Steel is more difficult to magnetise and is not easily demagnetised. An iron core makes a temporary electromagnet. It loses its magnetism as soon as the switch is opened and the current is switched off.
How are electromagnets used in the Magnet Lab?
They vary in strength from very weak but sensitive electromagnets used to detect other magnets or electric currents to the huge research instruments used here at the Magnet Lab. Before you begin to build your electromagnet, let’s check to see if the nails are magnets.
Which of the following appliances does not use an electromagnet?
Among the given appliances only the electric heater does not use an electromagnet. Was this answer helpful?
How is an electromagnet different from a permanent magnet?
The electromagnet uses this principle. Simply put, an electromagnet is a magnet which functions on electricity. If the current flow is cut, the property of magnetism ceases to exist. But this is also an advantage of the electromagnet over a permanent magnet because controlling the electric current also controls…
How are electromagnets used in everyday life?
Electromagnets have a wide range of uses, from the MRI machines used in hospitals to remote-control toy cars to many appliances in your home. They vary in strength from very weak but sensitive electromagnets used to detect other magnets or electric currents to the huge research instruments used here at the Magnet Lab.
