Does water interact with magnets?
How does water affect magnetic field of a planet? As water flows around the planet, these ions are deflected by the Earth’s magnetic field – positive ions are pushed one way, negative ions the other. This builds up volumes of positively and negatively charged water, sometimes on a scale of thousands of kilometres.
Do magnets lose strength in water? Will a neodymium magnet lose its power when dropped in water? The simple answer is no. In fact, magnets are sometimes used for underwater recovery.
What happens if a magnet gets wet? Any water penetration into the magnet, however, will cause a slow deterioration of the magnet’s magnetic field and cause rust to leak from even the most microscopic scratch or aberration in the magnet’s outer coating.
