Answer :

Iron is the material used for making electromagnets because of its magnetic properties which makes it magnetize easily and makes it able to be magnetized for longer time.

An electromagnet is made by rounding a wire and make its shape as same as solenoid which acts as a bar magnet when electric current is passed through it. If we insert soft iron core in it, its magnetic field would increase.
