Diamond is a paramagnetic material.

[A]. True
[B]. False

Answer: Option B


Diamond is diamagnetic.

Sujan said: (Mar 12, 2014)  
Paramagnetism is a form of magnetism whereby certain materials are attracted by an externally applied magnetic field. In contrast with this behavior, diamagnetic materials are repelled by magnetic fields.

It is right, diamond is not attract in any magnetic field.

Rakesh said: (Oct 2, 2014)  
Diamond is generate lite amount of light so the para magnetic will not emit energy thus it is diamagnetic.

Rahul Kumar said: (Jan 13, 2015)  
That's answer is right, diamond is no attract.

Raju said: (Jun 9, 2015)  
Diamond has no unpaired of electrons and diamond can form only covalent bonds. So it is a right answer.

Sulochana said: (Jul 14, 2015)  
What is covalent bond?

Mohsin said: (Aug 14, 2015)  
Yes every body is right that it is not a paramegnetic material.

D Venkataramana Prasad said: (Sep 13, 2015)  
Mutual sharing of electrons between two atoms is called covalent bonding.

Shiny said: (Dec 7, 2015)  
Yes diamond is a diamagnetic.

Ram Aware said: (Jun 29, 2016)  
Dimond is diamagnetic. It's not attraction.

Arunkk said: (Jul 4, 2016)  
I agree, diamond will be a diamagnetic material.

Maheriya Akshay said: (Jul 28, 2016)  
Yes, I agree diamond is diamagnetic material.

Dheeraj said: (Sep 2, 2016)  
No this is false because diamond is a diamagnetic material. Diamond doesn't conduct the electricity that's why there no chance to create any magnetic field. So that's why it is a diamagnetic material. And diamond is the compound of the carbon but carbon conduct the electricity except for diamond there is no other compound which doesn't conduct electricity.

Harsha said: (Sep 24, 2016)  
Can you please explain it correctly, carbon can conduct electricity then why diamond cannot conduct electricity?

Amulya said: (Dec 20, 2016)  
Diamond is an insulator.

Rohini said: (Jun 7, 2017)  
Yes, I agree diamond is an insulator.

John Thomas said: (Jul 29, 2017)  
As said above diamond forms covalent bond, so it does not have any free electrons to exhibit any magnetic or electric properties so, even though some carbon compounds conduct electricity diamond does't. So diamond is not an para magnetic material.

Deekshith said: (Aug 16, 2017)  
Yes, diamonds is an insulator.

Murali said: (Apr 1, 2018)  
Diamond is an insulator.

Cdilliprasad said: (Jul 18, 2018)  
Good explanation. Thanks all.

Pravalika said: (Jul 22, 2018)  
Good explanation. Thank you all.

Sweety said: (Aug 9, 2018)  
Diamond is not a paramagnatic material becuase diamand is not attracted any magnatic field.

Venky said: (Aug 14, 2018)  
Diamond is dia; there is no free electrons.

Heena said: (Oct 7, 2018)  
Diamond doesn't have free electrons to carry the electricity so there is no chance to create magnetic field.

Mohd Sadik Husain said: (Sep 15, 2019)  
Thanks all for giving the explanation.

Bhargavi said: (Dec 4, 2019)  
Why it is called magnet? Magnet is attract right.... diamond is not attracted

Sang said: (Dec 6, 2019)  
In reply to Sujan, if paramagnetism materials are attracted by an externally applied magnetic field,then, can you tell me an example?
What are diamagnetic materials? Example?
Can we call a magnetic field when 2 magnets attract each other?

Raghava said: (May 11, 2020)  
The property of a material to allow the magnetic field through it is known as permittivity.
