Use this Iron Powder to demonstrate the powers of magnetism in your science projects. This Iron Powder is made of tiny particles of Iron. Each particle reacts to a magnet's presence making it very useful in demonstrating the direction of magnetic fields. Since iron is a ferromagnetic material, a magnetic field induces each particle to become a tiny bar magnet. The south pole of each particle then attracts the north poles of its neighbors, and this process repeated over a wide area creates chains of filings parallel to the direction of the magnetic field.

Common projects involving Iron Powder:

  • To demonstrate the reaction of the filings to magnets
  • Study the effects of magnetism and electromagnetic fields
  • Demonstrations: sprinkled on a white index card with a permanent magnet below
  • Toys that allow one to draw with a magnetic pen
  • Sprinkling over a card's magnetic strip to see the magnetic encoding of the strip
  • Display the patterns of bits on a hard drive platter by pouring a semi-viscous fluid in which iron filings are suspended
