Example text

But once the coil is exactly lined up with the magnet, the insulated half of the wire touches the supports instead of the bare half. The electricity is cut off, and the coil is no longer an electromagnet. This leaves it free to coast on around until the bare copper can again touch the bare support and start the whole process over again. A Faster Motor One easy way to make the motor run faster is to add another magnet. Hold a magnet over the top of the motor while it is running. As you move the magnet closer to the spinning coil, one of two things will happen.

When you scraped off the insulation from the armature wires, you did it with the coil standing up, and not lying flat on the table. This made the poles of the electromagnet point to the left and E L E C T R O M A G N E T I S M right, as if there were an invisible regular magnet that had the wire wrapped around it. If the coil were flat on the table, the poles would point up and down. Since the poles point left and right, they have to move in order to line up with the magnet at the bottom, whose poles are aligned up and down.

33 34 G O N Z O G I Z M O S Now suppose you had placed three balls after each magnet. When the last ball is released, it hits a ball that is 5⁄8 inch from the magnet. It has not gained much momentum, because most of the momentum gained is in the last half-inch as the magnet pulls more strongly on things that are closer. But the ball has enough energy from previous accelerations to release the next ball. However, that ball has less energy than the ball that caused it to release. It may have enough energy to release another ball or two, but each ball that is released has less energy than before, and eventually the chain stops.
