Lesson Worksheet: Magnets and Transportation Science

In this worksheet, we will practice modelling and describing a floating magnet and explore the use of magnets to improve transportation.

Q1:

Isabella makes a floating magnet by placing a pencil through two ring magnets.

She explains how it works. Fill in the blanks.

  • Aattract each other, poles
  • Bstick together, forces
  • Crepel each other, magnetic fields
  • Dpush apart, north poles

Q2:

Look at the picture. Timmy is describing how a maglev train works.

Shanghai Transrapid Maglev magnetic levitation train

Fill in the blanks: He says, “It works by using on the train and tracks that one another and make the train float above the tracks.”

  • Amagnetic fields, attract
  • Bmagnets, attract
  • Cmagnets, repel

Q3:

A group of students are talking about the advantages of a maglev train.

Who is incorrect?

  • AJackson
  • BScarlett
  • CAnthony
  • DAmelia

Q4:

Read the passage.

The hyperloop train system moves very fast. So, a train trip that now takes 6 hours could take just 30 minutes. The Hyperloop does not cause pollution and it does not need much energy to run. However, not everyone thinks that the hyperloop train is a good idea. Some people think it is too expensive and too difficult to build and operate.

High-speed commuter train.

What is an advantage of a hyperloop train?

  • AIt requires a lot of energy to run.
  • BIt does not cause pollution.
  • CIt causes pollution.
  • DIt is not difficult to build and operate.

What is a disadvantage of a hyperloop train?

  • AIt is too expensive.
  • BIt does not need much energy to run.
  • CIt does not cause pollution.
  • DIt is not difficult to build and operate.

Q6:

Which of these is a maglev train?

  • A
    train
  • B
    Old Steam Train
  • C
    Shanghai Maglev Train Model
  • D
    Street car

Why is it called a maglev train?

  • AIt uses steam to move.
  • BIt uses wheels to move.
  • CIt uses magnets to move.

Q7:

Which of these is a hyperloop train?

  • A
    Concept of magnetic levitation train moving on the skyway across the city on the water.
  • B
    High speed train of Russia, the streamlined design of a modern bullet train.
  • C
    Amtrak Acela Express train passing through Harrison station in Newark, New Jersey
  • D
    Brightline high speed train traveling south towards Miami with power lines in the background

Fill in the blanks to justify your answer: It uses the force of to push pods at a high speed.

  • Apulling, on rails
  • Battraction, in tunnels
  • Cmagnets, in tubes

Q8:

What is needed to make a floating magnet?

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D

Q9:

Look at the picture.

Hyperloop Modern city transport magnetic levitation train

Fill in the blanks: A hyperloop train works by using magnets on the train and the tracks that one another and make the train float above the tracks and push the train through a large .

  • Arepel, tube
  • Battract, tube

Q10:

Which of these is a floating magnet?

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D
