Magnets can make electricity. A magnetic field pulls and pushes electrons in some objects near them to make them move. Metals, like copper, have electrons that are moved easily and can be readily moved from their orbits. If a magnet is moved quickly through a coil of copper wire, electrons move and electricity is made.
Similarly one may ask, can you pass electricity through magnets?
The current in an electromagnet passes through a coil of insulated wire. This produces the magnetic field. so yes if they are pretty good conductors of electricity then electricity can pass through magnets.
How magnets can be used to generate electricity?
Inside a generator is a magnet, some electrical wire, and a source of mechanical energy. The mechanical energy moves the wire into the magnetic field of the magnet so that the wire cuts through the magnetic lines of force. As a result, electric current is produced. Electric generators can come in all sizes.
What is affected by magnets?
As seen in the previous section, and copied below, the material the permanent magnet is made from has a significant effect on the overall strength of a magnet. The material will also determine how its flux is affected by temperature, and how easily the magnet can be demagnetized by opposing magnetic fields.
