### NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Science Chapter 13 – Fun with Magnets – NCERT Exercises

Question 1:-

Fill in the blanks in the following

(i) Artificial magnets are made in different shapes such as __________, __________ and ____________.|
(ii) The Materials which are attracted towards a magnet are called________.
(iii) Paper is not a ______ material.
(iv) In olden days, sailors used to find direction by suspending a piece of ___________.
(v) A magnet always has ___________ poles.

(i) Artificial magnets are made in different shapes such as bar magnet, horse shoe and cylindrical.
(ii) The Materials which are attracted towards a magnet are called magnetic.
(iii) Paper is not a magnetic material.
(iv) In olden days, sailors used to find direction by suspending a piece of magnet.
(v) A magnet always has two poles.

Question 2:-

State whether the following statements are true or false:

(i) A cylindrical magnet has only one pole.
(ii) Artificial magnets were discovered in Greece.
(iii) Similar poles of a magnet repel each other.
(iv) Maximum iron filings stick in the middle of a bar magnet when it is brought near them.
(v) Bar magnets always point towards North-South direction.
(vi) A compass can be used to find East-West direction at any place.
(vii) Rubber is a magnetic material.

(i) False
(ii) False
(iii) True
(iv) False
(v) True
(vi) True
(vii) False

Question 3:-

It was observed that a pencil sharpener gets attracted by both the poles of a magnet although its body is made of plastic. Name a material that might have been used to make some part of it.

Materials that are magnetic in nature are towards a magnet. Hence, Iron might have been used to make some part of it.

Question 4:-

Column I shows different positions in which one pole of a magnet is placed near that of the other. Column II indicates the resulting action between them for each
situation. Fill in the blanks.

Question 5:-

Write any two properties of a magnet.

The two main properties of magnets are:

1. They attract magnetic materials like Iron, Nickel, and Cobalt.
2. They always point in the north-south direction.

Question 6:-

Where are poles of a bar magnet located?

The two ends of a bar magnet represent the two poles, North and South.

Question 7:-

A bar magnet has no markings to indicate its poles. How would you find out near which end is its north pole located?

Bar magnets always point the north-south direction. When suspended in air through a thread from the middle, the end that points to the north direction is the north pole of a magnet.

Question 8:-

You are given an iron strip. How will you make it into a magnet?

If given an iron strip, we can convert it into a bar magnet by following the given steps:

1. Place the given strip on a table.
2. Place one of the poles of a bar magnet at one edge of the strip.
3. Without lifting the bar magnet, drag it along the length of the strip till the other end.
4. Lift the magnet and with the same pole to the starting point again and repeat this 30 to 40 times.

You will get a new magnet made by you.

Question 9:-

How is a compass used to find directions?

A compass contains a magnetic needle. The needle always points to north-south direction. When we know these two directions, we can find east and west easily.

Question 10:-

A magnet was brought from different directions towards a toy boat that has been floating in water in a tub. Affect observed in each case is stated in Column I. Possible reasons for the observed affects are mentioned in Column II. Match the
statements given in Column I with those in Column II.

### Important Terms Relevant to understand NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Science Chapter 13 – Fun with Magnets: –

Compass: A compass is device used to find directions. It contains a magnetic needle that always points to north-south direction.

Magnet: A material that attracts other materials with magnetic properties like iron and cobalt is called a magnet. There are natural as well as artificial magnets.

Magnetite: Magnetite is a rock that has magnetic properties naturally. It contains iron and was discovered at a place called Magnesia.

North pole: The end of the magnet that points to the north when suspended freely is called the north pole.

South pole: The end of the magnet that points to the south when suspended freely is called the south pole.
