magnetic force

1. The force that exists between two magnets, caused by the interaction of their magnetic fields. This force causes the magnets to attract or repel one another.
2. The force that exists between two moving, electrically charged particles, causing them to attract or repel one another.

Noun1.magnetic force - attraction for ironmagnetic force - attraction for iron; associated with electric currents as well as magnets; characterized by fields of force
attraction, attractive force - the force by which one object attracts another
electromagnetism - magnetism produced by an electric current; "electromagnetism was discovered when it was observed that a copper wire carrying an electric current can magnetize pieces of iron or steel near it"
antiferromagnetism - magnetic field creates parallel but opposing spins; varies with temperature
diamagnetism - phenomenon exhibited by materials like copper or bismuth that become magnetized in a magnetic field with a polarity opposite to the magnetic force; unlike iron they are slightly repelled by a magnet
ferromagnetism - phenomenon exhibited by materials like iron (nickel or cobalt) that become magnetized in a magnetic field and retain their magnetism when the field is removed
paramagnetism - materials like aluminum or platinum become magnetized in a magnetic field but it disappears when the field is removed

"What, you here too, prince?" said Rogojin, absently, but a little surprised all the same " Still in your gaiters, eh?" He sighed, and forgot the prince next moment, and his wild eyes wandered over to Nastasia again, as though attracted in that direction by some magnetic force.
It is believed that some magnetic force makes this happen.
The academy is an important literary institution, and we should make it as vibrant as it used to be so that it can become a magnetic force for writers.
The magnetic force provides frictionless propulsion and enables high rotating speeds for ground driving and air flying.

Nowadays, the magnetic force microscopy (MFM) is advanced well established surface-sensitive technique for magnetic domain observations in a variety of magnetic materials (e.g., recording media [14], particles [15], nanocomposites [16,17], amorphous and/or nanocrystalline alloys [1820], and thin films [21]).
External Magnetic Force. To deliver a magnetic field, we used a neodymium magnet (Sangyo Supply Inc., Miyagi, Japan).
The behavior of MNPs under a magnetic field, relating to the magnetic properties of carriers and the performance of magnet systems, depends on the interplay of the magnetic force, Stokes drag, and diffusive motions acting on the particles [3,4].
Nevertheless, under conditions of magnetically non-saturated particles the magnetic force on the particles is proportional to both the external magnetic field and the magnetic field gradient.
