Magnet Experiment: Are Two Magnets Twice as Strong as One?
Nearly everyone has had some fun playing with magnets, trying to pick up different magnetic things, feeling the repelling force when pushing poles together, or even prying strong magnets apart. But how do they work?
Magnets create invisible areas called magnetic fields, in which other magnetic things will be attracted or repelled. Magnets usually contain high amounts of the element iron.
