Magnets, magnets, magnets.
To be honest the only people who understand how magnets work are scientists and students who happen to be studying them. However, what we do know about them is that they stick to metal and they repel with other magnets.
But what about these neodymium magnets?
Neodymium magnets are the strongest type of magnets. These magnets are commercially available, however, they can be a little dangerous.
In some cases, the magnets are able to hold more than 1,000 times their own weight. So, if you get your hand between the two of them, that’s a lot of crushing force. In fact, if these magnets are of the proper caliber, a row of them is powerful enough to affect the speed and angle of a steel bullet in mid flight.
If that’s not impressive enough, neodymium magnets that are as large as the palm of a person’s hand are strong enough to affect everything magnetic or electronic in a room, and these larger versions can’t be transported by plane because their severe strength causes them to interfere with a plane’s navigation system. WHOAH!!!
They are known as “rare earth magnets” because they contain elements from the periodic table that are -extremely rare. Created in 1982 by General Motors, they are nearly always made of metal alloy containing neodymium, iron, and boron.
Watch the amazing video below as two super-strong neodymium magnets jump together in slow motion, destroying a variety of every day items.
