Ferrofluid   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (3))
A magnet placed just below a dish containing ferrofluid generates an array of spikes in the fluid.
Paramagnetism: Nitrogen and Oxygen   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (3))
A magnet is shown to strongly attract a pair of metal tongs. The magnet has no visible effect on liquid nitrogen, but when pale blue liquid oxygen is poured near the poles of the magnet, it shows definite attraction.
Paramagnetism: Oxidation States of Manganese   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (3))
Manganese(III) oxide, with 4 unpaired electrons per Mn atom, is more strongly attracted to a magnet than is manganese(IV) oxide, with only 3 unpaired electrons per Mn atom. Potassium permanganate, a compound of Mn(VII), has no unpaired electrons and is not attracted to a magnet.
Paramagnetism   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (3))
The paramagnetic properties of oxygen are demonstrated using a strong magnet, and compared with diamagnetic nitrogen.
Ferrimagnetism   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (2))
Precipitation reactions are used to produce iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3 called hematite) and mixed iron(II)/iron(III) oxide (Fe3O4 called magnetite). The particles in the slurry of hematite are not attracted to a magnet, but the particles in the slurry of magnetite are.
Paramagnetism: Compounds   
(Movie/Animation, Audio/Visual (11))
Vials of a number of compounds (NaCl, MnSO4, FeSO4, CoCl2, NiSO4, ZnSO4, K4Fe(CN)6, [Co(NH3)6]Cl3, [Ni(NH3)6]Cl2, and H2O) are hung from a thread. When a magnet is brought near, some of the vials are attracted.
Paramagnetism (GCMP)   
(Interactive Simulation, Software (1))
Paramagnetism: this is a resource in the collection "General Chemistry Multimedia Problems". In this problem we will begin by observing the magnetism of three manganese compounds. These compounds have been placed in capsules, which will be pulled toward a magnet if the compound is paramagnetic. General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.

What makes diapers absorbent? Is peanut butter stickier than syrup or jelly? Strong, stretchy, sticky, or sweet—everything around us has special properties which make them unique. See if you can identify and compare the characteristics of materials.
