Here’s something a bit easier than the motor from the last email.
A simple way to build your own electromagnet!
…which is pretty cool:
1. Take some insulated wire.
2. Wind it around a screw, maybe about 50 times.
3. Connect a big 1.5 V flash-light battery
Place it over some small metallic objects to test it.
Here’s an image:
Note: Not all metals are magnetic. For example copper coins won’t be attracted to the magnet.
Keep on Soldering!
