Seeing what happens with a ring magnet and iron filings

it looks like the iron filings take an opposite structure than the ferrocell. in the ferrocell the fields sepreate at the transitions between N and S poles. with iron filings they collect in the transition zones and the archs shown in the iron filings are opposit to the archs shown in the ferrocell. The poles seem to be respected in both structures. I think the ferro cell shows that magnets have two seperate fields with nothing traviling between them and that iron filings show the magnetic direction that little magnets follow. a magnet attracts N to S , but the fields are seperate from each other on the iron filings too under the infulance of the 2 magnets under the cloth. then again I could be wacky as a loon bot. What do you think ?

combo of iron filings and a ferrocell. The iron filings seem to gather where the fields seprate do to the transition zone between the north field and the south field.

I colected some iron filings in a sand pit and removed most of the sand. I have some videos with the stuff comming up.

This time I show which poles are on the magnets ... Dosent seem to have anything to do with the poles ... I think one magnet is just is magnitized slightly differantly than the others.

2 ring magnets on a ferrocell. One magnet seems to have a smaller hole in the center on one side than the other one.

Candle lit version of the last couple of videos where 2 magnets are stuck on ether side of a steel bar with poles facing the same way.

steel bar with magnets poles the same direction

I mad a ferrophoto of my last upload of the 2 bar magnet with the steel bar between them . Both poles are facing the same ways. I used window light to show the ferrophoto.

Just 2 magnets with a bar between

the field is warped a lot by this config . i think it is very interesting.

kinda neat ... you just got to watch it.

I put the bar magnets on repulsing and joining and view in the ferrocell.

2 norths pointing in and 2 souths pointing in

This time I explain the magnet configuration. I also have wild speculations as usual. Crazy old me.

4 magnets pointing in with 2 north and 2 south poles next to each other. I don't explain it in the video.

Candle lit version showing 3d ness of the Ferrophoto magnet field imprint

showing that weak magnets are usable on a ferrocell and are much more controllable than strong magnets. Notice how the internal fields move towards and away from each other.

This is the same Ferrophoto of the 4 bar magnets I made a video of last time. This time I use the red and blue flash lights.

This makes an interesting ferrophoto. More on this ferrophoto to come.

Another wild speculation. I was just wondering if the Right Hand Rule works this way with magnets ??? Or maybe a 90 deg. rule ???

This time I use a red and blue flash lights to illuminate the ferrophoto.

Ferrophoto of the ring magnet from previous videos on a ferrocell light box.

This shows how a ferrophoto will show a positive image on one side and a negative image on the other side

Using candles as my light source gives a more 3d solid image. One side of the ferrocell shows the reverse image of the other side of the ferrophoto.
