# Thread: Magnets and Polarization

1. Hello, Im just wondering if there is a way to stop magnets form polarizing? Any help would be appreciated.

2.

3. Sounds like you are trying to stop a magnet from being itself! Also, monopoles dont exist.

4. Im not sure if thats quite the right word. I mean is there anyway to stop a magnet form losing its power when its its contact with other magnets. Keeping it strong! And such.
Thanks

Well, to my knowlege, superconducting magnets will not lose any of there "magnetic strength" as long as they are in their super-conducting state.

6. Hm, not quite what I mean. If I were to create a closed circuit (a large one with little curve) And placed angled magnets around the side (on both sides), and then placed a magnet in the center of those two rows, so that the magnets on the wall would propel the free moving magnet forward, is there a way to stop that free moving magnet from losing stength?

Thanks

You're a little hasty and confident. Monopoles have never been disproven. It could simply be a matter of just dedecting one.

8. I can't quite picture what you are trying to make. I hope it isn't some kind of perpetual motion machine.

To answer your question, a permanent magnet can become demagnetized by high temperature, mechanical shock, or alternating magnetic field. Some kinds of magnets are more resistant to demagnetization than others. Ceramic magnets have fairly good resistance to demagnetization.

9. Im not trying to make it, just wondering about it. But sort of. This might seem like a very naive thought, but I had hoped it would work. Its essentailly using the forces of two sets of magnet to propel another forward, hopefully in a circle (i.e. a generator). Im not sure you could really call it a perpetual motion machine because its not creating energy out of nothing, just turning the kinetic enegry of the magnets and transfering it through the copper.

Once again if this seems overly naive, I apologize. Im yet to take physics and Im basing my thoughts of of internet information (and help from you hopefully)

This is just one of the things that have gone through my head (mostly about ways to produce energy)

Thanks :-D

10. Hello, well I just found this through this site.

So thanks for any help. I got some answers.

But, could it be possible to attach a copper coil to the center of this and create usable energy cause as far as I can tell from this picture its only used to make the ball spin forever... (or long time)

No, extracting energy from the system will, well... , extract energy from the system.
