6.3 Magnetic materials

Recall the properties magnetically hard and soft materials

Magnetically hard materials can be permanently magnetised by a strong magnetic field. Steel and other special alloys of iron are magnetically hard.

Magnetically soft materials can be magnetised very easily, but the magnetism induced in them is only temporary and easy to remove. Iron is magnetically soft material.
