  • ID Code: J7-11
  • Purpose: Demonstrates paramagnetic and diamagnetic materials
  • Description: A sample of copper sulfate, a paramagnetic material, is slightly attracted to a magnet. A sample of bismuth, a diamagnetic material, is slightly repelled by a magnet. Samples of copper sulfate and bismuth are balanced on a light dowel rod hanging by a strip of plastic audio recording tape. The 2-kilogauss horseshoe magnet is used to push and/or pull the samples around, illustrating the small paramagnetic and diamagnetic forces.
