artificial magnet means having magnetic property forsome time. It can be obtained by rubbing that object on a natural magnet from north pole to south pole or from south pole to north pole continuously for some time
Artificial Magnets possess a magnetic effect for a short amount of time (At least for 3 to 5 minutes or more) depending on the number of times we stroke the metal.
The Artificial Magnet must be made of any one of the following metals
• Iron (Most commonly used)
• Nickel
• Cobalt.

To create an Artificial Magnet you must stroke the respective metal a number of times either from North to South or from South to North. This will temporarily magnetize the metal and thus act as an Artificial Magnet.
