Like poles repel, unlike poles attract. Iron and steel are the only materials that can be magnetized to any practical extent. Certain alloys, such as Alnico, can be strongly magnetized and are called permanent magnets. Permanent magnets are generally in the form of a horseshoe or bar. The space around the poles of a magnet is described as a magnetic field and is represented by magnetic lines of force. The total number of magnetic force lines surrounding a magnet is called its total magnetic flux.

001 INCH AREA 1 CIRCULAR MIL AREA 1 SQUARE MIL COMPARISON OF CIRCULAR MIL AND SQUARE MIL Figure 2-2 Enlarged view of circular mil and square mil. The question may be asked why we make a comparison of the circular mil and the square mil. If a square conductor is to be replaced by a round conductor, or vice versa, we must use the same cross-sectional area to obtain the same conductivity. Therefore, electricians need to know how to change circular mils into square mils, and vice versa. 7854 gives the number of square mils.
