How do magnets form?
Why do magnets have a + and a - end?

Is it because the + end has more electrons that flow to the - end with less electrons(or is it the opposite?)

Where does a lodestone(a naturally occuring magnet) come from.

How does the lodestone become magnetised?

one comment i could add is the electron theory applies to electonics and electrical i dont think it is applicable to magnets

A mixture of molten ingredients that when dry have opposing forces inside that can not escape because they are "stuck" together.
Therefore they continue forever this push pull effect against each other.

 Quoting: Goodseed


All you need to do is get the electrons to line up in one direction...hematite is formed from molten rock during volcanic activity and when it cools the electrons are frozen in one direction...you can take a nail or bolt and magnetize it with a powerful magnet by dragging it one way to get the electrons to line up.

From the magnetic field of the Earth...when in a molten state they easily align with it, and then it cools and is permanent.

Re: How do magnets form?
The how is the why to your question, OP.
Try Google. It's a great tool.

In natural magnets, in every atom of the metal, electrons are all spinning around the atom, but they also rotate (Like many earths around the sun).

Since all of the electrons that revolve around the atom rotate in the same direction, they build up charges (magnetic charges) at each end of the metal.

This results in a positive and negative pole per magnetic metal.

no. if you have a stored power source you can detect a magnetic field coming from it. you can detect energy in the magnetic field of a magnet.

Re: How do magnets form?
you may want to do some research into electromagnetics

hf

interesting stuff!

also ...just playing around with magnets and doing some test projects helps you better understand the behavior of them.
