n.
A magnet consisting essentially of a coil of insulated wire wrapped around a steel or iron core that is magnetized only when current flows through the wire.

(ĭ-lĕk′trō-măg′nĭt)
A device consisting of a coil of insulated wire wrapped around an iron core that becomes magnetized when an electric current flows through the wire. See Note at magnetism.

electromagnet

A temporary magnet produced when electric current flows through wire that has been coiled around soft iron.
