Why do we prefer steel or alnico for making permanent magnets?

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


The material which we choose for making magnet should have high coercivity. The high coercivity ensures that magnetism in the material stays for a longer time. As steel and alnico have high coercivity, therefore, they are used for making permanent magnets.
