Adjective "ferromagnetic" definition and examples

Pronunciation

/ˌfɛrə(ʊ)maɡˈnɛtɪk/

Definitions and examples

adjective

(of a body or substance) having a high susceptibility to magnetization, the strength of which depends on that of the applied magnetizing field, and which may persist after removal of the applied field. This is the kind of magnetism displayed by iron, and is associated with parallel magnetic alignment of neighbouring atoms.
  1. 'As these ferromagnetic substances (the guitar strings) move within the magnetic field of the permanent magnet, it causes the flux through the bobbin to change.'
  2. 'The temperature at which the magnetic ordering in ferromagnetic substances vanishes is known as the Néel temperature.'

Definitions

1. noting or pertaining to a substance, as iron, that below a certain temperature, the Curie point, can possess magnetization in the absence of an external magnetic field; noting or pertaining to a substance in which the magnetic moments of the atoms are aligned.
