More meanings / definitions of Magnetic or words, sentences containing Magnetic?

Diamagnetic (n.): Any substance, as bismuth, glass, phosphorous, etc., which in a field of magnetic force is differently affected from the ordinary magnetic bodies, as iron; that is, which tends to take a position at right angles to the lines of magnetic force, and is repelled by either pole of the magnet.

Lodestone (n.): A piece of magnetic iron ore possessing polarity like a magnetic needle. See Magnetite.

Magnetical (a.): Of or pertaining to, or characterized by, the earth's magnetism; as, the magnetic north; the magnetic meridian.

Polar (a.): Of or pertaining to the magnetic pole, or to the point to which the magnetic needle is directed.

Magnetic (n.): Any metal, as iron, nickel, cobalt, etc., which may receive, by any means, the properties of the loadstone, and which then, when suspended, fixes itself in the direction of a magnetic meridian.

Magnetometer (n.): An instrument for measuring the intensity of magnetic forces; also, less frequently, an instrument for determining any of the terrestrial magnetic elements, as the dip and declination.

Aclinic (a.): Without inclination or dipping; -- said the magnetic needle balances itself horizontally, having no dip. The aclinic line is also termed the magnetic equator.

Electro-magnet (n.): A mass, usually of soft iron, but sometimes of some other magnetic metal, as nickel or cobalt, rendered temporarily magnetic by being placed within a coil of wire through which a current of electricity is passing. The metal is generally in the form of a bar, either straight, or bent into the shape of a horseshoe.

Induce (v. t.): To produce, or cause, by proximity without contact or transmission, as a particular electric or magnetic condition in a body, by the approach of another body in an opposite electric or magnetic state.

Magnetical (a.): Pertaining to the magnet; possessing the properties of the magnet, or corresponding properties; as, a magnetic bar of iron; a magnetic needle.

Armature (n.): A piece of soft iron used to connect the two poles of a magnet, or electro-magnet, in order to complete the circuit, or to receive and apply the magnetic force. In the ordinary horseshoe magnet, it serves to prevent the dissipation of the magnetic force.

Induction (n.): The property by which one body, having electrical or magnetic polarity, causes or induces it in another body without direct contact; an impress of electrical or magnetic force or condition from one body on another without actual contact.

Magnetic (a.): Alt. of Magnetical

Needle (n.): See Magnetic needle, under Magnetic.

Magnetic (n.): A magnet.

Dipolar (a.): Having two poles, as a magnetic bar.

Magneticalness (n.): Quality of being magnetic.

Electrical (a.): Electrifying; thrilling; magnetic.

Siderite (n.): Formerly, magnetic iron ore, or loadstone.

Paramagnetic (a.): Magnetic, as opposed to diamagnetic.

Magnetism (n.): The science which treats of magnetic phenomena.

Sleepwaker (n.): On in a state of magnetic or mesmeric sleep.

Demagnetize (v. t.): To deprive of magnetic properties. See Magnetize.

Declinometer (n.): An instrument for measuring the declination of the magnetic needle.

Northness (n.): A tendency in the end of a magnetic needle to point to the north.

Magnetical (a.): Capable of becoming a magnet; susceptible to magnetism; as, the magnetic metals.

Southness (n.): A tendency in the end of a magnetic needle to point toward the south pole.

Diamagnetism (n.): That form or condition of magnetic action which characterizes diamagnetics.

Phrenomagnetism (n.): The power of exciting the organs of the brain by magnetic or mesmeric influence.

Magnetism (n.): The property, quality, or state, of being magnetic; the manifestation of the force in nature which is seen in a magnet.

Words, slangs, sentences and phrases similar to Magnetic

Meaning of Magnetic North

Magnetic North means: The direction to which a compass points. Magnetic north differs from true north because the magnetic fields of the planet are not exactly in line with the north and south poles. Observed differences between magnetic and true north is known as magnetic variation.

Meaning of Magnetic Course

Magnetic Course means: The course of a vessel after magnetic variation has been considered, but without compensation for magnetic deviation.

Meaning of Magnetic Bearing

Magnetic Bearing means: The bearing of an object after magnetic variation has been considered, but without compensation for magnetic deviation.

Meaning of Magnetic Variation

Magnetic Variation means: The difference between magnetic north and true north, measured as an angle. Magnetic variation is different in different geographic locations, so the nearest compass rose to each location on a chart must be used.

Meaning of Magnetic Deviation

Magnetic Deviation means: Compass error. The difference between the reading of a compass and the actual magnetic course or bearing due to errors in the compass reading. These errors can be caused by metals, magnetic fields and electrical fields near the compass. The act of checking for magnetic deviation is called swinging.

Meaning of Variation

Variation means: Magnetic variation. The difference, east or west, between magnetic north and true north, measured as an angle. Magnetic variation varies in different geographic locations.

Meaning of Compass

Compass means: Navigation instrument, either magnetic, containing a magnetized card indicating the direction to magnetic north (showing magnetic north) or gyro (showing true north).

Meaning of Deviation

Deviation means: (1) Differences between the compass reading and an actual magnetic direction caused by magnetic forces in the vicinity of the compass, which are usually the result of masses of metal, speaker magnets, etc. (2) Vessel departure from specified voyage course.

Meaning of Compass Course

Compass Course means: The direction of a ship's heading as read on a compass. The compass course has added the magnetic deviation and the magnetic variation to the true course.

Meaning of Compass

Compass means: Navigational instrument showing the direction of the vessel in relation to the Earth's geographical poles or magnetic poles. Commonly consists of a magnet aligned with the Earth's magnetic field, but other technologies have also been developed, such as the gyrocompass.

Meaning of Nelson's Balls

Nelson's Balls means: The iron spheres positioned on either side of a magnetic compass, designed to correct magnetic errors caused by the ship itself. Usually they're painted green and red. Named after Admiral Horatio Nelson. Incidentally, in the RN, they're called "Lord Kelvin's Balls".

Meaning of Magnetic North

Magnetic North means: The direction towards the North Magnetic Pole.

Meaning of Absolute bearing

Absolute bearing means: The bearing of an object in relation to north. Either true bearing, using the geographical or true north, or magnetic bearing, using magnetic north. See also bearing and relative bearing.

Meaning of Dead Head

Dead Head means: The resistance of a magnetic compass to swinging back and forth excessively.

Meaning of Isogonic Lines

Isogonic Lines means: A line connecting points of equal magnetic variation on a map.

Meaning of Agonic Line

Agonic Line means: Lines on the Earths surface joining point where there is no magnetic variation.

Meaning of Swinging Ship

Swinging Ship means: The process of checking the accuracy of and adjusting the ship's magnetic compass.

Meaning of Swinging the Compass

Swinging the Compass means: Measuring the accuracy in a ship's magnetic compass so its readings may be adjusted.

Meaning of Points

Points means: Division of the circumference of the magnetic compass card into thirty:two points, each of 11° 15'.

Meaning of Pelorus

Pelorus means: A card marked in degrees and having sightings on it that is used to take bearings relative to the ship, rather than magnetic bearings as taken with a compass.
