It's not just a magnet, it's a thing called and induction forge.
"Induction heating is a non-contact process which uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to produce heat in a workpiece. By placing a conductive material into a strong alternating magnetic field, electrical current is made to flow in the material, thereby causing Joule heating."
Taken from the wiki page on it. and a good video www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4xsqw463Hs

Also, this is one of my favorite things, is that the reason it falls once it reaches a certain temperature, is based on a principle used alot in bladesmithing called the Curie temperate. Its the point at which steel loses its attraction to magnets, something to do with the particles magnetic fields changing at that point.

magnetism (electromagnetic force) is due to the exchange of force particles between the 2 objects. which in the case of electromagnetism are photons. The reason that the electromagnetic field does not just rush of at the speed of light if because the photons in an magnetic field are virtual photons. they are constantly absorbed and remitted causing a charged object to be constantly surrounded by a cloud of photons being emitted and reabsorbed. These photons will only interact with charged objects and not with each other so they can be exchanged with other charge objects and this exchange is the electromagnetic force.

Photons are the particles released from atoms that produce light. Photons are light. Electromagnets have little to do with the concept of light energy. Photons literally travel at the speed of light. The field of positive and negative magnetic force is called a magnetic field and depending on the type of magnet the field will increase or decrease in size as current is increased or decreased.

You need to read more about magnetism.

what he is talking about is a bit more than middle school science, he is very right.

Cmon man. Don't comment unless you know what you're commenting about.

***** , you is wrong.
Look up Maxwell's equations or take a class in electromagnetism.

I do believe I already did something on this before. Let me go get it.
User avatar #64 to #53 - sciencexplain (04/04/2014) [-]
Found it.

This gif is a great example, nearly perfect actually, of Lenz's law. It shows how magnetic fields are generated from nearly nothing. If you dropped steel through a tube, it would go through normally, aside from a bit of friction and that. However, putting a magnet through changes everything. I think they used Neodymium for this experiment. Basically, when you drop the magnet through the copper tube, the copper notices an actual magnetic field in contact with it. The magnetic field creates a current in the copper tube and that current that has been induced develops its own magnetic counter-field to oppose the magnet, which is why it wouldn't move fast. In fact, it wouldn't move at all if it didn't have gravity. When putting spiraled copper with Neodymium, the magnet is surrounded by a base effect of magnetic field and it suspends it permanently in the air until altered. You can then fiddle with the magnet how you want and it will always spring back up.

Yah it would be perfectly safe... Unless it has metal it it.

can we weaponize this?
#37 to #22 - OzzyCrow (04/04/2014) [-]
kinda, but it works differently. if you have a coil with a current running through it, an electromagnetic field is induced. if you pass an iron based metal through the coil then it comes flying out the other side because of this field. so i guess it could be weaponised.

Oscillating magnetic currents + air friction followed by the magnets being shut off. Not that difficult.

It's magnetic induction. There's 3 kilowatts of power coming through that thing.

magnetic induction from one directional power heats iron until its (aww **** cant remember the name, something to do with the structure of the atoms) and it becomes non magnetic and it falls

It's the curie temperature, also called the A2 temperature(if it's steel). Hoorah for metalurgy
