The 100mm (4") long ferrite bar magnet can be used for standard physics lab experiments in understanding the nature of magnetic fields. Sold individually for simple paper clip pickup experiments so buy 2 for attraction/repulsion.

Two 100x20x7mm bar magnets were placed in contact with opposing poles (N:N). They were released and the distance caused by the repulsive force was measured.

Forty paper clips were placed in a 500ml beaker. A single 100x20x7mm ferrite bar magnet was dipped into the beaker to pick up as many paper clips as possible.

These bar magnets are totally useless. they barely pick them selves. I gave these to my grandson, they look nice but even he was disappointed compared to the nd rare earth magnets. Maybe I'm missing something here, if I'm, wrong please tell me

These ferrite bar magnets are intended solely for picking up light weight objects like paper clips, moving iron filings or demonstrating attraction/repulsion. An Nd bar magnet that size would cost $50 vs the $1.00 you paid. They are also child safe. Nd magnets this size would snap together with such force that they would break a child's finger. We did the paper clip pickup test as outlined in Magnet Experiments for Kids after seeing an Amazon review complained their ferrite bar magnets could barely lift a single paper clip. The product & its review disappeared the day after our blog was published. You couldn't have bought a better magnet for your grandson.
