sir you said in your vedio lesson that when magnet attracts iron fillings each iron filling becomes a small magnet. can we conclude that everything that gets attracted by a magnet becomes a magnet itself and aligns itself in the direction of the magnetic field?

Expert Answer:

Yes. Everything that gets attracted to a magnet becomes a temporary magnet.
 
Its strength only exists till the time it is in influence of the magnet. As soon as the magnet is taken away from the object, the magnetism of the object is lost.
