Question

Do you think an electromagnet can be used for separating plastic bags from a garbage heap? Explain.

Solution 1

No.

Electromagnets can only attract magnetic materials. Plastic bag is a non-magnetic material and will not be attracted by an electromagnet. Hence, an electromagnet cannot be used for separating plastic bags from a garbage heap.

Solution 2

No, the plastic bags do not get attracted by the magnet, so they cannot be separated by an electromagnet. Plastic bags are not magnetic materials, only magnetic materials like iron can be attracted by the magnet.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
