Tin is magnetic in the literal sense of the word. The effect is so weak that it could be considered non-magnetic for all practical purposes. It is called a paramagnetic substance scientifically, but it has such a weak ef... More »

Zinc is generally not a magnetic metal. However, it can be made slightly magnetic when exposed to a very strong magnetic field, but this property immediately dissipates as soon as it is removed from the field. More »

Nickel is a ferromagnetic element. Nickel, iron, cobalt and gadolinium are the only elements that are magnetic around room temperature. A ferromagnetic metal can be attracted to magnets and can be magnetized itself. More »

Aluminum is not magnetic. It is considered paramagnetic and only reacts weakly when it's subject to a magnetic field. When the magnetic field is removed, aluminum doesn't hold on to any magnetism. Aluminum is often used ... More »

Iron, nickel, cobalt and gadolinium are naturally ferromagnetic elements. Common usage of the term "magnetic" refers to this form of magnetism. Other elements are capable of forming magnetic compounds, but are not magnet... More »
