mag·net

 (măg′nĭt)
n.
1. An object that is surrounded by a magnetic field and that has the property, either natural or induced, of attracting iron or steel.
2. An electromagnet.
3. A person, a place, an object, or a situation that exerts attraction: a village that is a magnet for tourists.

[Middle English magnes, magnet, ultimately (probably partially via Old French magnete) from Latin magnēs, magnēt-, from Greek Magnēs (lithos), Magnesian (stone), magnet, after Magnēsiā, a region of Thessaly, or Magnēsiā, a city in ancient Lydia.]

magnet

(ˈmæɡnɪt)
n
1. (General Physics) a body that can attract certain substances, such as iron or steel, as a result of a magnetic field; a piece of ferromagnetic substance. See also electromagnet
2. a person or thing that exerts a great attraction
[C15: via Latin from Greek magnēs, shortened from ho Magnēs lithos the Magnesian stone. See magnesia]

mag•net

(ˈmæg nɪt)

n.
1. a body, as a piece of iron or steel, that possesses the property of attracting certain substances, as iron.
3. a thing or person that attracts.
[1400–50; < Old French < Latin magnēt-, s. of magnēs < Greek for (hē) Mágnēs (líthos) (the stone) of Magnesia]

mag·net

(măg′nĭt)
1. A rock, piece of metal, or other solid that has the property of attracting iron or steel. A lodestone is a natural magnet, but most magnets today are made by inducing magnetism in a material such as steel or a metal alloy. Magnets have two magnetic poles, called north and south.
2. An electromagnet.

magnet

A substance able to attract iron and which produces a magnetic field.
