Have you ever wondered how magnets work? Perhaps you have wondered why some metals or materials are magnetic while others are not. Sit back and enjoy learning the answers as MinutePhysics and Veritasium team up to explain how magnets work with their double video feature.
The answer should be obvious: they work very well.
Very sciency. I guess the explanation is ok, since I'm not expert in magnets but I feel they skip a bit much. I think without some advanced (not highschool) knowledge about physics it's too hard to follow.
If you're interested in seeing magnets this could be fun for you.
If you want something a little less 'sciencey' but lots of fun then have a look at this introduction to magnetism video
