A magnet is dropped down a conducting copper pipe and feels a resistive force. The falling magent induces a current in the copper pipe and, by Lenz's Law, the current creates a magnetic field that opposes the changing field of the ...

First, liquid oxygen is made by passing gaseous oxygen through a tube submerged in liquid nitrogen. Then the oxygen is poured between the poles of a strong electro magnet. The paramagnetic nature of the oxygen causes an induced dipole....

Three aluminium objects are dropped through a magnetic field. The objects move slower entering and leaving the field due to changes in the flux through the object. The change in the flux through a conductor results in a force which opp...

Quick demo of a custom 3-phase AC induction motor controller I made for a term project. It lets you set synchronous speed and then observe DC and AC voltage/current sensors at different operating points. If you know me, you know it's ...

Leyden Jars, an early style of capacitor, can be connected to the two electrodes of the Wimshurst Machine. They will store charge as it is generated, giving a much stronger spark across the gap. Next we have a three-piece dissectible ...

A solid copper pendulum is mounted between the poles of an electromagnet (solenoid). The pendulum is set into motion, and then the magnets are turned on. The magnets induce eddy currents in the copper which oppose the motion of the pe...
