Static electricity/Static motors
Most motors used today use magnetic fields to create the motion. But it is possible to create motors that run off static fields. Why is a stationary electric field not used as much as a stationary magnetic field?
- soda can video
- plastic bottles with generator video
- video plastic bottles with wimshurst
- cyclotron video
- wireless operation
The designs appear to be easy to create from the videos.
|First attempt worked|
But the spinning bottle bounced back and forth. Next attempt used metal and bearings to stabilize, but failed.
Try to build each of the designs in the videos.
The goal is to operate with a minature whimshusrt machine built from a soda bottle as in one of the videos. This way an external whimshurt machine is not needed.
- Get the existing static motors working again
- Build new soda bottle motor with soda bottle generator
- Build can version
- Build cyclotron
