Description

This kit contains a small sample of pyrolytic graphite, 16 small rare earth magnets, a steel base and a pair of tweezers. When the magnets are arranged in a matrix on the base plate, the graphite will levitate just above their surface. This is a spectacular demonstration of diamagnetic behaviour involving repulsion of the graphite by both the N and S poles of the magnets.
