it is said to be stationary or at rest.4 Motion We observe many objects in our daily life. observe your surroundings and classify the objects under Objects in motion Objects at rest _____________ _____________ _____________ _____________ From the above activity we have learnt that some objects move and some remain stationary. air etc. 134 . If the object changes its position with respect to time then it is said to be in motion. Some of them move from one place to another and some of them remain stationary. Activity 1 On your way to school. we can actually observe that some objects change their position with time. Can we find out whether an object is at rest or in motion only by observing them directly? Activity 2 Do the earth. If an object does not change its position with respect to time. we come to know their motion from the effects they make. From the above discussion. Hence motion is defined as the change of position of an object with respect to time.Unit . In some cases. move ? If they move. how do we know it? We may get more information through a small group discussion. though we can not see the objects change their position.

Discovery of magnets Why do the pins stick to the pin holder placed on headmaster's / headmistress's table? How magnets were discovered? It is an interesting story. iron pieces and iron particles in sand. The only occupation for the people was grazing the cattIe. So he went when it is very close to the refrigerator. There was a region called Asia Minor. Powerful magnets are used in cranes. It was full of mountains. There was a shepherd Why does the door of the named Magnes.Unit . where there was a town called Magnesia. Have you ever enjoyed playing with them? Already we know that magnet attracts pins. Cranes are used to lift heavy iron loads. 142 . along with others to graze the cattle. to the pin-holder and the refrigerator. rocks and plateaus.5 Magnetism 5 Because the magnets are attached You might have seen magnets. Powerful electromagnets are used to operate electromagnetic trains. In those days there refrigerator get stuck automatically was no school in the town. lifts and escalators.

That is their iron-clad sticks. they called it When he woke up. their navigators by using these rocks SCIENCE One day. The They are called magnetic stones. with attracting property in several 143 .

It is better to find it out Substances that are attracted by ourselves. 144 .magnetic substances. Here some of the shapes of artificial magnets that we use in our daily life . but non-magnetic substances. pencil. wooden scale and coin are attracted by magnet or not?

Different directions magnet. magnetic compass we can find out different directions SCIENCE Shall we make our own magnet? There are several methods of making artificial magnets. So most of disc on which a small needle is pivoted the iron filings cling to the ends of the at its centre. By using this magnet as shown in the diagram. East. The Magnetic compass has been designed by using this directive Repeat the process for 30 to 40 property of the magnet. Take a nail / a piece of Iron and place it on a table. 145 . A freely suspended magnet always comes to rest in north-south direction. Now take a bar magnet and place North seeking pole is called north one of its poles near one edge of the pole. The ends of a magnet have the A magnetic compass is a circular strongest magnetic force. end to another end without changing the direction of the pole of the magnet. They are called poles of the (North. and west) are magnet. The poles of a magnet are easily The magnetic needle always rests found by freely suspending the in north-south direction. marked on the compass.This needle Which is north pole? Which is south can rotate freely and always point in the pole? north-south direction. South seeking pole is called nail / piece of Iron and rub from one south pole.

Unit . Similarly when the south poles of two bar magnets are brought closer they too move away from each other. When heated Shall we find out what happens when two magnets are brought closer? It is very easy to understand this. Unlike poles attract each other. continue the same process for some more time. When a north pole of one magnet and a south pole of another magnet When dropped 146 . they pull towards each other. Attraction? or repulsion? When we bring two north poles of two bar magnets closer as shown in the figure they move away from each other. If not. Do magnets lose their properties ? When? Bring a pin or some iron filings Magnets lose their properties if they near a nail /a piece of Iron to check are heated or dropped from a height whether it has become a magnet. or hit with a hammer. Like poles repel each other.5 are brought closer.

In 1600. English scientist William Gilbert proposed that earth behaves like a giant magnet. Magnetism Storage of magnets When hammered Improper storage can also cause magnets to lose their properties. televisions. Bar magnet Horse shoe magnet Horse shoe magnet Soft iron Bar magnet Soft iron SCIENCE Wooden piece Soft iron Let us know Magnets lose their properties if we keep it near the cassettes.Electromagnets are used in giant wheels. For horse-shoe magnet one should keep a piece of iron across the poles. These materials may also get damaged. They must be separated by a piece of wood and two pieces of soft iron should be placed across their ends. mobiles. bar magnets should be kept in pairs with their unlike poles on the same side. 2. To keep them safe. Fact File 1. compact disks and the computer. 147 .

The electric current that changes constantly allows a change in polarity of electromagnets.Unit . ___________________________ Electromagnetic train 148 . Germany and America. Electromagnetic train runs faster than ordinary train. This change in polarity pushes and pulls the train. In France.
