- Paramagnetic materials can align themselves parallel to the magnetic field direction when suspended in an external uniform magnetic field.
- They migrate from the weaker part and move towards the stronger part when suspended in a non-uniform magnetic field.
- These materials are magnetised in the direction of the magnetic field.
- The external temperature affects the magnetic properties of these substances.
Oxygen, salt solutions of nickel and iron are paramagnetic materials. Some other paramagnetic materials are also listed below in the table.
What is an alloy?
An alloy is a mixture of two or more metals or elements. For example, steel is a mixture of iron and carbon.
