Magnets and electromagnets form
crucial and important parts of many machinery and devices that we use in
our daily lives.
Designers of such machines use a
combination of conductivity and magnetic properties of different
materials to achieve specific functions.
The ability to become a permanent
magnet, the ability to become a temporary magnet and the inability to become a magnet are among such properties.
Magnetic permeability is the ability to
direct magnetic flux. Magnetic permeability is an
important physical property of any material; and it affects our
decisions when selecting material for different applications.
