Why are there probably no permanently aligned magnetic domains in Earth's core?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Because of high temperature in Earth's core, high activation energy of atoms due to absorption of high thermal energy of core makes their magnetic moments to align in random directions. Hence, there is no aligned magnetic domain in Earth's core. Magnetic domains are the regions in a m...
