Demonstrate the concepts of electromagnetism and electricity with this electric motor principles kit.
An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor’s magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to generate force in the form of torque applied on the motor’s shaft.
This Electric motor principles kit demonstrates electromagnetism and electricity, core principles in electric motor design. An electric motor uses a magnet (electromagnet) which is formed when an electric current is passed through the wire coil. An electromagnet in this kit is created with a north and south pole and remains magnetized as long as current is applied to the coil.
Interestingly, an electric generator is mechanically identical to an electric motor, but operates with a reversed flow of power, converting mechanical energy into electrical energy.
The Electric Motor Principles Kit comes with the following parts:
- Project board with legs
- Pillars for holding the coil
- Alligator clips
- Battery box with wires
- Metal clamps to hold suspended coil
This kit is easy to assemble and durable enough to remain assembled as a demonstration device or desktop decoration.
