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 » Science Physics Magnetism

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 » Science Chemistry

Tin is technically considered a magnetic metal. However, the magnetic properties of tin are so weak that it could generally be considered to be non-magnetic. More » Science Chemistry Atoms & Molecules

Tin has 50 electrons and five energy levels. There are two electrons in the first energy level, eight in the second, eighteen each in the third and fourth, and four valence electrons in the fifth. This element has the sy... More » Science Physics Magnetism

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 » Science Physics Magnetism

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 » Science Physics Magnetism

Iron is magnetic except when heated to the Curie point. The Curie point, which is sometimes called the Curie Temperature, is the temperature at which some magnetic materials undergo a major change in their structure. More » Science Physics Magnetism
