Magnet Man - Cool Experiments with Magnets

Magnet Man - Cool Experiments with Magnets
Cool Experiments with Magnets This web site is devoted to magnetism and the cool experiments you can do with permanent magnets and electro-magnets. Some of the experiments are very basic - things you've done since third grade. Others are unique - perhaps you hadn't thought of doing some of these before, or had difficulty in trying to set them up. Lists of the materials needed for the demonstrations, directions on how to assemble them, instructions on how to show them, and notes on how they work are all here for you. Have fun with hands-on experiments! Rick Hoadley(For other cool toys and puzzles, check this out!)

Basic Electromagnetic Wave Properties - Java Tutorial Electromagnetic radiation is characterized by a broad range of wavelengths and frequencies, each associated with a specific intensity (or amplitude) and quantity of energy. This interactive tutorial explores the relationship between frequency, wavelength, and energy, and enables the visitor to adjust the intensity of the radiation and to set the wave into motion. The tutorial initializes with a visible light wave appearing in the window having a wavelength of 650 nanometers (red light) and amplitude of 61 candelas. An electromagnetic wave moves or propagates in a direction that is at right angles to the vibrations of both the electric and magnetic oscillating field vectors, carrying energy from its radiation source to undetermined final destination. The standard unit for all electromagnetic radiation is the magnitude of the wavelength (in a vacuum), which is usually reported in terms of nanometers for the visible light portion of the spectrum. ν = c/λ Contributing Authors

Protector: How Can Magnetic Materials Be Shielded From a Magnetic Force Field? Problem How can magnetic materials be shielded from a magnetic force field? Materials scissors ruler cardboard 2 pencils masking tape bar magnet 10 paper clips stainless steel cake-server Procedure Cut two 8-inch × 4-inch (20-cm × 10-cm) cardboard pieces. Results The paper clips are first pulled up and cling to the bottom of the cardboard-and-air sandwich. Why? The magnetic lines of force from the magnet pass through the cardboard and air, as indicated by the attraction of the paper clips toward the magnet. Let's Explore What other materials are permeable? Show Time! Use iron filings to show the effect of permeable and non permeable materials on magnetic lines of force. Check It Out! Like a bar magnet, the earth has a magnetic field around it.

Pulse Motors - Electromagnetic Energizing Here are some of the motors I have worked on in my quest to discover what they call Overunity, and I have become thoroughly convinced of several ways in which it can be done. However, even if we cant achieve some revolutionary breakthrough that has been hidden for years, we can still charge some damn batteries and save some money. You may not realize it but the batteries you throw away on a regular basis are still good for something. Click HERE for some additional information on batteries and what we're doing to them. These are some of my projects have I found to be enlightening to me in the learning process. How it works: (or click HERE for my explanation of how the Bedini works) When dealing with an electric motor/generator we generally use the same basic principles.. By capturing these high voltage spikes created in the switching process, we can send them to another battery and charge it.

But you may not know that magnetism and electricity are related. In these experiments, we will study some of the properties of magnets and magnetism, and we will also see how a magnet can be used to produce electricity. Observing the Poles of a Bar Magnet Materials Needed: Two bar magnets. Procedure: Place one of the magnets on a smooth surface such as a table. What Happened: Every magnet is surrounded by an invisible field called an “magnetic field”. Going Further: Try bringing your two magnets together in different places to see whether there are other places where they attract and repel. Demonstrating that a Compass Needle is a Magnet Materials Needed: Small bar magnet; compass; tape; pen or pencil. Procedure: Identify which end of the compass needle points north. Now, bring one end of the bar magnet to the compass. Identifying the North and South Poles of a Magnet Using a Compass

Wolfgang's Aircrafts & Engines: Wolfgang's Flugzeuge & Motoren GCSE PHYSICS - Electromagnetism - How does a Residual Current Circuit Breaker Work? - RCCB Electromagnetism Residual Current Circuit Breaker - RCCB. An RCCB is also called an RCD (Residual Current Device). How does a Residual Current Circuit Breaker Work? This type of circuit breaker works by comparing the current going in to an appliance with the current coming out. When an appliance is working correctlyall of the current entering the appliance through the live wire is returned to the power supply through the neutral wire. If something goes wrong with the appliance some of the electric current will flow through the earth wire. The coil connected to the neutral wire now has aweakermagnetic field than the coil connected to the live wire. The RCCB acts to switch off the electricity much faster than a fuse or MCB.

Dites NON au mouvement perpétuel Un collègue est arrivé au boulot tout excité par le “moteur magnétique” présenté par un certain Aurélien Prévost à l’émission “l’inventeur 2012” sur M6. Il s’agit d’une “rampe de lancement” magnétique très similaire à celle ci-dessous [1], déjà brevetée en 1977 [2]: Après une petite démo de la version linéaire du moteur qui pourrait étonner ceux qui n’ont jamais joué avec des Geomags ou autres aimants, Aurélien explique calmement kyaka refermer la rampe pour former un circuit circulaire fermé et fixer les billes à une roue pour que celle-ci tourne toute seule, grâce à un moteur magnétique qui ne nécessite ni carburant ni batterie. L’enthousiasme du jury pour cette “invention” qui va permettre à la France d’alimenter le monde en énergie gratuite fait peine à voir dans un premier temps. Après avoir revu la séquence plusieurs fois, je suis persuadé qu’il s’agit d’un canular monté par Aurélien avec la complicité d’une partie du jury, voire de toute l’émission de M6.

GCSE PHYSICS - How does a Circuit Breaker Work? - What is an MCB? - Electromagnetism Electromagnetism How does a Circuit Breaker Work? This page describes a simple circuit breaker. See thenext page for the residual current circuit breaker. The circuit breaker acts as a safety device in the same way as a fuse. Circuit breakers that are used at the distribution board in houses are called MCBs (minature circuit breakers). When the live wire carries the usual operating current, theelectromagnet is not strong enough to separate the contacts. After the fault is repaired, the contacts can bepushed back together bylifting a switch on the outside of the circuit breaker.
