¿Qué son los imanes? ¿Por qué se pueden encontrar imanes dentro de máquinas como televisores, radios y teléfonos? ¿Qué tienen que ver los átomos y las partículas diminutas que los conforman—protones, neutrones y electrones—con el magnetismo? Los imanes proporcionan fuerzas que tienen la capacidad de empujar o atraer otros objetos. Los experimentos fáciles de poner en práctica ayudan a los lectores a analizar los principios centrales del magnetismo.
