Is this “Homopolar” motor too easy to be true? Just a wire, magnet and battery…

    I did one of Theas for my science project last year. you need to make sher you have a curent through the batery and you need coper at the bottom to make it spin and that needs current runing through the coper it needs to be coper because coper sends a rotation magnetic pheald while electrons are running though it and you need at least two magnets to make it spin

    0:57 I laughed at this more than I should have, because I always do that when thinking about magnetic field LMAO




    If I ever become a villain, my escape plan would be using hundreds of batteries with magnets that let fans rotate... they'll be glued to a glider XD

    7:48 for class i had to make this motor but in place of the battery we had wood with thick wire in it looped at the top and we put the armature in the loops and then used a dc power supply to power it.
    it was pretty fun, the class was about electricity and electromagnets, though it was a quarterly class and the quarter just ended. almost spelled "quarter" like "quater" because i'm so used to the spelling of "quaternion" since i've been working with them lol.

    The "aah-aah battery" reference almost made me fall out of my chair I was laughing so hard!! I'm glad I wasn't eating or drinking anything at the time. I'm going to start using that reference myself.
    Of course there's also the aah-aah-ahh battery as well.

    A few years ago I built that second type of motor you made. I actually got it running pretty smooth. I don’t remember sanding only one side of the magnet wire but I may have had the first type of magnet you had oriented just right. It worked really well and I could get it to spin pretty fast using 2 AA batteries. Winding didn’t get too hot for me.

    The full bridge rectifier or how is it called ? I ain't told the paths of electric magic. Somehow my electrical lessons never worked, the first school who should feature it (i live in austria and in our school career we tend to visit at least 3 types of school bevore we could get jobs or keep going to school to gain access to universidty, you normally should get lessons in electricidty in the second school already) had no teacher who could teach it so no lessons there and the one im in currently ( last year bevore universidty quallification) had a bad teacher who didn't care abbout the lessons as it where his last years at school. Too stupid that i found interest into soldiering and easy to make electrical gadgets.
