  1. Magnetism of Gases

    Faraday experimented on this point by coloring gases with a little vapor of iodine or other colored gas, and letting them flow between the two poles of a powerful electromagnet. In this way he found some are repelled, some attracted, and in the case of oxygen, it is attracted at one temperature and repelled at another. At ordinary temperatures a cubic yard of oxygen possesses the magnetism of 5.5 grains of iron and when liquefied it is strongly attracted.
