  is it possible that detecting and sensing a magnet using an alternating current metal detector?

+ 0 like - 3 dislike

hello. I'm now studying about principle of metal detector

I read that metal detector can find metal using eddy current and Electromagnetic induction

then, is it possible to detect and to sense a magnet with metal detector?

if possible, how accuratly detect?

thank you for reading. 

Closed as per community consensus as the post is not graduate-level

Voting to close as not graduate-level and beyond. Might be on-topic on PhysicsForums, however.
