I bought a demagnetizer and I tried to demagnetize a Raketa mechanical alarm clock. When I put the alarm clock near a compass, the needle is attracted to it. Both the north and south poles of the needles are attracted to it and neither are repelled. So does that mean the alarm clock is not magnetized? I did an experiment with the demagnetizer with a paper clip. The compass needle is attracted to the paper clip with both poles after using the demagnetizer. When I use a magnet to magnetize the paper clip or just leave it on the demagnetizer without slowing pulling it away, the paper clip will now only attract one pole of the compass and repel the other pole. I'm not sure how this works. I appreciate any help. Thanks!
