It was observed that a pencil sharpener gets attracted by both the poles of a magnet although its body is made of plastic. Name a material that might have been used to make some part of it.

 

Answer :

ron might have been used to make some part of it.

Question 5 :

Write any two properties of a magnet.

 

Answer :

Properties of a magnet are as follows

  • It attracts objects made of Nickel, Cobalt and Iron.

  • Like poles of two magnets repel each other and opposite poles attract each other.

 


Question 6 :

A bar magnet has no markings to indicate its poles. How would you find out near which end is its north pole is located?

 

Answer :

A bar magnet is hung in the air, and the end pointing to the north is the north pole of the magnet.

 


Question 7 :

You are given an iron strip. How will you make it into a magnet?

 

Answer :

Take a bar magnet and keep in contact with one of its poles with one edge of the bar of iron.

  • Without lifting the bar magnet, move it along the length of the iron bar till you reach the other end.

  • Lift the magnet and bring the pole (the same pole you started with) to the same point of the iron bar from which we began.

  • Move the magnet again along the iron bar in the same direction as you did before.

  • Repeat this process for about 30-40 times.

 


Question 8 :

How is a compass used to find directions?

 

Answer :

A compass always shows north and south directions; by keeping this as a reference, we can always find east and west directions also.
