2) Q: Why does a piece of iron behave like a temporary magnet when placed in a magnetic field?

2) A: Iron can become magnetic when placed in a magnetic field because of its crystalline structure. It has a property called ferromagnetism. When in a magnetic field the domains align in the same direction.
(I got this from a variety of sources, should it be worded different?)
