Grammar mistake.

Should write, "What do you think of Monday's Science?"

--Need help from science experts! (Conductors/magnets)

Postby Tapeworm » Sun Oct 10, 2010 4:05 pm

Hi guys,

I'm taking psle science tomorrow, and I really need help on electrical/heat conductors and magnetic objects. could someone here please type up a list of the common electrical conductors/insulators, heat conductors and magnetic objects? Cause I get mixed up on that a lot.

and does anyone know an easy way to remember them?

thanks guys

Hello! I'm taking PSLE Science tomorrow too!

Well, here's a list that I can think of right now.

Magnetic Materials:

Iron
Steel
Cobalt
Nickel

My science teacher says we only need to know iron and steel. :)

Electrical Conductors:

Water
Metals

Heat Conductors:
Metal

Common Electrical Insulators would be plastic and rubber.
Common Electrical Conductors would be iron,steel etc. Water and carbon are also electrical conductors.

Wow, thanks.
And while you're here, i just wanna clear some doubts. Is copper an electrical/heat conductor and/or a magnet? O.O

Oh and, I don't remember where, but i read somewhere that steel isn't a natural magnet, and that it needs to be magnetised.. is that true?

and so for heat conductors and electircal conductors, I just remember that all metals are?

Hello again.xD.

I'm no science expert but as far as I know from my notes, steel is an alloy.
And copper is non magnetic but is an electrical conductor.
It is also a heat conductor.
I got my answers from powerpoint slides done by my class and from the web.

Thanks.. i'll just remember steel is an alloy although i don't know what an alloy is.
Good luck for tomorrow.. :)
do you mind me asking what school you're from?

An alloy is a mixture of metals.

:) Good luck too!

I'm from compassvale primary. How about you? :celebrate:
