Ferromagnetic Fluid :
Make your very own ferromagnetic fluid and do science experiment with magnets with this easy-to-use test tube kit.
Each test tube contains a bag of special magnetic powder and a strong magnet, so when you suspend the powder in a liquid, you can place the magnet near the tube and watch amazing
Ferro fluids are colloidal liquids made of nano scale ferromagnetic, or ferromagnetic, particles suspended in a carrier fluid.
The ferromagnetic fluid allows you to get a visual representation of the usually invisible magnetic fields that surround any ordinary magnet – it’s truly fascinating to see and will “attract” the attention older kids and even adults! Wave the magnet up and down the sides of the test tube or bring it close, then pull it away and watch the nano magnets line up and wave around as if by magic! Of course, it’s not really magic, it’s science!
Ferromagnetic technology is used in all kinds of modern applications including speaker technology and in medical science in the form of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). So, you can see how this ferromagnetic fluid science kit could be a useful introduction into a future career for budding sound engineers or medical personnel!
