With the Buzzing Stunt Hematite Magnets, learn an exciting lesson about magnetism with this pair of powerful hematite magnets. When tossed the magnets collide and "wrestle" for equilibrium in a great clattering.
Teach your students an exciting lesson about magnetism with this pair of powerful hematite magnets. When tossed into the air, the two ellipsoidal magnets collide and then wrestle for equilibrium in a great clattering, buzzing collision. Simply rest one magnet between your index finger and thumb, and the other between the thumb and middle finger, and then gently toss the magnets into the air. The resulting collisions create erratic buzzing and chirping sounds. The poles of the magnets are aligned through their narrow circumferences-the buzzing occurs as the magnets strive to stay in perfect balance with each other.
