4chan science-board, but I forgot the exact link, sorry.

**** , that's awesome to look at.

I know, right?
And I still don't know what it is!

when you put electricity through a coil it creates a magnetic field. this field tends to put force on metal thats magnetic and when in a normal coil can put enough force on the metal to shoot it. This coil doubles back on itself. this means there are two coils in opposite directions putting equal force on the metal. this allows the metal to levitate as you see it. however the opposing magnetic fields also create a sort of turbulence in the metal. this generates heat in the metal allowing it to melt as seen.(this technology tends to be used in electric cook tops) the power is then turned off and it drops in a heap on the ground.

Why the **** am i learning more on FJ than i ever did at school...

is that icp?

yes

Copper isn't magnetic, but leads electricity really good (aka a stream of electrons). The magnet pushes the electrons around in the copper tube, and creates electricity(the same concept is used in generators). Electricity also creates a magnetic field. Since it's a tube, the magnetic field would also be a tube, that engulf the magnet. This field is strong enough to overcome some of the G that the Earth have, which make the magnet fall slower.
Done.

Do you enjoy being stupid?

XD I was kidding around man
#54 to #41 - sreggin (04/04/2013) [-]
good except magnets dont move electrons. a moving magnet creates an electric field
User avatar #99 to #54 - alven (04/05/2013) [-]
It creates a magnetic field. Either way, electricity comes from moving electrons. So a field would be moving electrons in a strong positive magnetic field.
#78 to #54 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
If you really want to be sciency (sorry for incorrect spelling) use relativiy, a moving conductive box in a magnetic field concept, the electrons move to resist motion this is then causes a secondary magnetic field with in the box.

Is it possible to ********** a bunch of magnets, copper, and batterries, transformers, etc. to get a near-perpetual-motion motor? What do you think of the Joe Newman device? Now granted I only heard of it from a guy who claimed to build it with him... if you don't know what im talking about, then just the first question.
User avatar #98 to #77 - alven (04/05/2013) [-]
you could make it near-perpetual, but it not possible to make it completely perpetual. This is because of friction. Either in direct contact or with the electrons in the magnets. Both goes over to energy, in form of heat. You could make perpetual motor if you had super conductors, since super conductors don't have resistance. But you would need to make a sc that stays super conducting in room or some degrees below zero Celsius. It's possible with metallic-hydrogen, but it takes 500 peta(that's a 5 followed by 17 zeroes) pascals to do that. That's about the same pressure as in Jupiter's core(our atmosphere got a pressure of 100 KPa. about 10 tons per 1m^2 at sea level. Imagine what that number would be in Jupiter's core. That sums up how hard it would be to make a perpetual motor(If possible)

Forgot to say that it would have to work in zero G or in space to be completely perpetual, because gravity is a force that would help with it with some energy.
User avatar #102 to #100 - bulbakip (04/05/2013) [-]
Well what about the mechanic part of it? how would the all the parts go together to form a self charging motor?
User avatar #103 to #102 - alven (04/05/2013) [-]
I' onlym 18 years old. So that question should you ask a engineer . But i metallic hyrogen can be solid. So my theory is that i could work, if you made a hollowed donut shap out of the hydrogen and put a magnet inside the donut. Shake it to get the magnet moving, and bam, you should get a perpetual motor. The theory part works, and the magnet should eventually make the current strong enough so the magnet doesn't tuch the walls of the donut. This, I think would be the simplest way to make a perpetual motor.
I've just solved the world's energy problem, with possibly the safest, simplest and cleanest solution ever.

Quick drawing+ explication of the concept

I like your use of that picture, you read the comic by any chance?

Why yes, I enjoy it quite regulary on the occasion of every new update.
I understand you do as well.

that and her husbands work as well, but that is not really something for everyone.

Well, I must admit I learned about Sigeel thanks to Nebezial.
And I agree his work can be difficult for some to accept. His style is rather characteristic.

I am very happy that Sigeel has adopted one of my suggestions to draw a portrait of blue lit Elly. Truly nice of her.
User avatar #42 to #40 - imofcnotharveydent (04/04/2013) [-]
well yeah I like both his accounts though, he introduce me to sigell as well

imagine if we could make some sort of transport with this , like a hovering bullet train
#30 to #28 - karlossacramento (04/04/2013) [-]
as far as I know, all high speed trains (at least in germany) use this mechanism to break from high velocities. It's awesome since it doesn't use friction so the material doesn't have to be replaced that often and the heat is easier to transfer, since it heats up the rails and not the brakes on the train
#29 to #28 - jacksatan (04/04/2013) [-]
It exists. Maglev train, look it up.

Yeah and some retard always has to shop the "Now it's art" nose thing onto every art related picture yet they still get thumbed up
