Permanent magnets are made from magnetized material such as cobalt, iron, and nickel and some alloys of rare earth metals such as neodymium. Permanent magnets create their own magnetic field that never loses its strength. An example of a common permanent magnet that is found in nearly every household is a refrigerator magnet used to hold notes on the refrigerator door.
Permanent magnets have many industrial uses and are a vital component of many electronic devices and motors. As part of the induction process for generators, permanent magnets are used to convert mechanical motion into energy. They are also essential for the proper function of many of the electronics that we use everyday, such as computer monitors, televisions, microphones, speakers and electric guitars. Permanent magnets are even used in jewelry!
