Chapter 5: Magnetic Behavior
This chapter is a review of magnetic materials and how they behave. It begins by discussing the significance of ferromagnetism and comparing the Curie temperature of several ferromagnetic elements. It then discusses the concept of magnetic domains and illustrates how flux paths, and magnetostatic energy, vary based on the size of the domain. It also discusses the process of magnetization and compares and contrasts hard and soft magnetic materials.
