How does a scrap heap magnet work?

A Scrap Heat Magnet is a magnet that is used to transport metal scrap in a junkyard. It can only lift things that are magnetic. The scrap heap magnet is basically a giant electromagnet that is powered by a very large battery. It works the same way an ordinary electromagnet works. Thick insulated copper wire is wound around a soft iron core. The magnetic power of an electromagnet depends upon the current and the number of turns in the coil. The copper wire can withstand very strong currents and a large number of turns in the coil create a very strong magnetic field. When the current passes it becomes very strong and attracts all the magnetic materials in the scrap.
