Given:
A magnet was brought from different directions toward a toy boat that has been floating in water in a tub. The effect observed in each case is stated in Column I. Possible reasons for the observed effects are mentioned in Column II.

To do:
To match the statements given in Column I with those in Column II.

Solution:
Let us know some properties of a magnet here. The properties of a magnet are as follows:
  • Attractive Property$\rightarrow$

A magnet attracts ferromagnetic materials such as iron, cobalt, and nickel. When a metal piece is placed near a magnet, the magnet attracts the metallic piece.  This shows the attractive property of a magnet.

  • Repulsive Properties$\rightarrow$ 

Two like Magnetic poles repel each other and unlike magnetic poles attract each other. When a north pole of a magnet is placed near the north pole of another magnet, they repel each other.  Similarly, two south poles of two magnets repel each other.

  • Directive Property$\rightarrow$ 

A freely suspended magnet always points in a north-south direction. Compass is a good example of this property. 

Now let us match the statements given in Column I with those in Column II. The correct match is as follows:



Column I

Column II
Explanation by image
The boat gets attracted to the magnet
The boat is made up of magnetic material.


The boat is not affected by the magnet
The boat is made up of non-magnetic material.


The boat moved towards the magnet when the north pole is brought near its head
The boat is fitted with a magnet with the south pole towards its head.


The boat moves away from the magnet when the north pole is brought near its head
The boat is fitted with a magnet with the north pole towards its head.


Boat floats without changing its direction
The boat has a small magnet fixed along its length.
