7.4: Laboratory Activities for Chapter 7

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

The Electron Spin Quantum Number Lab – Diamagnetic Levitation

In this chapter, we discussed the differences between diamagnetic and paramagnetic material. In this lab, we suggest demonstrating how a diamagnetic material is slightly repelled by a magnetic field.

Materials:

A thin sheet of pyrolytic graphite

A set of magnets

A complete diamagnetic levitation kit can be bought from certain school supply websites. A reasonably priced kit can be found at http://www.teachersource.com/ElectricityAndMagnetism/ElectricityAndMagnetism/DiamagneticLevitationKit.aspx

Method:

Place the graphite above the magnets and watch it float!
