Abstract

Abstract. Meteorites are known to be attracted to a magnet, whether they possess magnetic property or not are unknown. Hence to study the attractive property and magnetic property in meteorites, seven meteorites, six iron meteorites namely Campo-del-Cielo 2 nos, Sikhote Aline 1 no., unknown iron meteorites 3 nos, and Chelyabinsk, a stony meteorite were investigated to study their attractive property and magnetic property. For the study purpose, three experiments were conducted through mariner compass, standard magnets of different strength and iron filings. The conclusion drawn from these experimental studies showed that meteorites do not possess any magnetic property. They are found to be strongly attracted towards a magnet because of Fe compounds i.e., [Fe (iron) and Ni (nickel)] and possibly may be due to unknown elements present in them. This paper reports the work carried on seven meteorites on a preliminary basis, to study the attractive and magnetic property in meteorites and to put on records the work carried out. This work is of prima facial in knowing and studying the attractive and magnetic property in meteorites by different and simple methods. This is a small attempt to solve the fundamental question about magnetic property in meteorites.
