I know that the force of a magnet's push/pull is measured in gous (spelling), but do magnets also have a range of frequencies that they operate at? I mean it in the sense that we can see a certain spectrum of light because our eyes can recognize those wave lengths or frequencies. In the same sense, do magnetic waves have certain wave lengths or frequencies that they poerate at. If so, can they be controled in the same way light or radio waves are? If thats possible, can it me done with permanent magnets? (Note:If the last 3 or 4 questions aren't possible, oh well). If you're wondering, this is all for a little project I'm trying at home, just out of interest, not for school or retail purposes. Also, can a permanent magnet's stregth be increased temporarily (or permanently) by short, periodically controlled bursts of electricity? And what are the effects on the magnet from such an action. Thank you for your time, Andrew. PS: Please keep all the math to an algebra level, Thanks.
