Domain

Definition of domain: Let us today understand the concept of domain:

Domain is a region in a ferromagnetic material where all the magnetic dipole moments are aligned.

The domains are of microscopic size of the order of 10-8 to 10-12 m3 and contains about 1015 to 1017 atoms.

Each atom of a domain has magnetic moment in the same direction and gives a resultant large magnetic moment to the domain.

I hope you have understood the meaning of domain.
