29: Ferromagnetic Materials

  • Page ID
  • Learning Objectives

    On completion of this TLP you should:

    • Understand ferromagnetism as a type of magnetism and some of the reasons an element is ferromagnetic
    • Be aware that magnetism is affected by temperature
    • Understand the factors contributing to the formation of magnetic domains
    • Know why hysteresis occurs, and the factors which affect it

    Before you start

    Most of this package does not assume any previous understanding of ferromagnetism. However a brief understanding of atomic and electronic structure in elements may aid some explanations. However it is not necessary!
