Ferrofluids are stable colloidal suspensions of ferromag- netic nanoparticles in a liquid carrier. … The results obtained indicate that the physical origins of the observed peaks and magnetic anomalies in ferrofluids are associated with the blocking and freezing effects.
Why ferrofluids are not electrically conductive fluids? Why they are dielectric fluids? Ferrofluids are colloidal liquids made of Nano-scale ferromagnetic, or ferrimagnetic, particles (such as iron and copper) suspended in a carrier fluid.
But when a magnet is brought close to the ferrofluid, the particles rapidly align with the magnetic field, forming the characteristic spiky appearance. If a magnetic object is placed in the ferrofluid, the spikes will even climb the object before cascading back down.
If too much water is added, the ferrofluid will become too dilute and will not spike. If the ferrofluid is too dilute, hold the strong magnet under the weighing boat, then tilt the weighing boat so that the excess liquid runs off.
When a strong magnet is placed near the ferrofluid, spikes are observed. The spikes arise from the tendency of the particles to line up along the magnetic field lines to lower their energy. Surface tension of the fluid, however, limits the extent to which the particles can align themselves with the field.
To make this DIY ferrofluid, you will need to:
Fingerprint powder is composed of many different ingredients that can vary greatly depending on the formula used. Most black fingerprint powders contain rosin, black ferric oxide and lampblack. Many also contain inorganic chemicals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, copper, silicon, titanium and bismuth.
Black is by far the most commonly used latent print powder color. Black powder is manufactured from a variety of carbon-based powders with a binder added for stability. This carbon-based powder readily adheres to the oily residues generated by contact from fingers and other body parts.
When cleaning ferrofluid you have a few options, but repeated washing with soap or detergent is the advice. If you take the proper preparatory steps and clean any residue immediately with soap, water, and a little elbow grease, your experiment should be all cleaned up in no time.
Put your piece of masking tape in the air gap of the magnet and move it around circularly. The old, mucky, ferrofluid will stick to the tape. The tape is filled with ‘dirt’, take a new piece. Move the (clean) tape around as long as ferrofluid comes out.
