  • What Stocks Are Good To Invest In For 2014? What are potential stocks that could blow up this year. I successfully picked out Solarcity and Tesla Motors last year but what are some that could this year?

    A 0.45-m Copper Rod With A Mass Of 0.17 Kg Carries A Current Of 11 A In The Positive X Direction.? A 0.45-m copper rod with a mass of 0.17 kg carries a current of 11 A in the positive x direction. What are the magnitude and direction of the minimum magnetic field needed to levitate the rod?

    I need help setting up and solving this physics problem, please.

    • Curator says:

      Think of the situation like this
      The copper rod is lying along the x-axis with current in the positive x direction
      now the force on it is solely due to gravity , that is , equal to mg
      Now to levitate it you just need to apply force equal to mg
      The force on a Wire / Rod of length L carrying current i kept in a magnetic field B ==> F=BiL
      hence F = BiL = mg
      B * 11 * 0.45 = 0.17 * 10
      B= 0.34 Tesla
      Now to determine the direction You can use Flemings Left hand rule
      If i is towards +ve x and and force towards +y then magnetic field should be applied in -ve z direction..

    How Did Nikola Tesla Invent Alternating Current? I have to write an essay on alternating current and I wanted to know how Tesla invented it. If you can give me some good websites where I can read about it. It will really help alot. Thank you.
    Also why did he invent ac. I know that dc was not good for long distances, but what else. Thanks again.

    Spark Plug . Brush N Wheel . 7.2v~28.8v+ Set Up. What Else Do I Need To Make The Plug Arc? Old school style and bulky not an issue. Just need a fast hot spark for a spark plug. Mosfets and flybacks didnt exsist 100 years ago so how did they do it. How do i make my own buzz box or vibrator coil or brush setup it need not be pretty or complex just hot fast and simple. Not building a jacobs ladder or tesla coil. Its for severul designs i already built valveless pulse jets should i just use a stun gun id like a rotary brush setup so i can vary timeng for indavidual engine starting whom ever ansers i greatly respect your time and input disreguard my perfect spelling im not a idiot. Thank u for responding

      The olden approach would be an induction coil, which has a built in buzzer to interrupt the current, all mounted in a nice wooden box with polished brass bits. This is not much different to a modern ignition coil with an external interrupter like the points on a car, or a transistor circuit or a relay circuit that cuts its own throat. Apparently it only needs a few sparks a second. Both are electro-mechanical versions of a flyback circuit, but to fire a spark plug it should be the right coil, not one from a TV or other gizmo..

      I saw a magneto off a lawn mower mentioned in a pulse jet forum, driven by a turbine driven off the engine. Needs good mechanical skills.

      One way is an old style (pre EFI) car ignition coil meant to work with points. It normally has a ballast to run at 12V, often a wire that acts as a resistor, because it is intended to work at about 8V during engine starting. Therefore it can work at 8 or 9V properly without the ballast, so long as the battery can supply enough current for long enough. This seems to be a 2 or 3 cell Lipo battery about 2000mAh capacity, not knowing how long you want to run it. If you use 12V battery, you need the ballast wire or resistor, which is something like 1.8 ohms 25W. Some cars had a large porcelain resistor mounted near the coil instead of the special wire. It is just left on all the time here.

      When the circuit is closed the current builds up to several amps, storing energy in the magnetic field of the coil. When it is opened, the magnetic field collapses and generates a high voltage in the primary (hundreds of volts) and that in turn is stepped up by the secondary. The voltage is high enough to fire a spark plug, which is around 10,000V under cylinder pressure. The coil is not run without a spark plug ideally, because the voltage can be much higher and break the coil down internally. A capacitor is connected across the switch (points or relay contact). A capacitor from a car is best of course, not electronics store types. The points can be driven by a cam driven by a suitable small electric motor and gears. Small battery drill?

      You can use a relay with heavy duty contacts. Look at the car points, something like that. It will be 10A minimum rating. The relay itself might be driven by a pulser using electronics, or having a second contact that opens when the relay operates to release the relay, or even a second relay that drives the coil relay. The relay will buzz, so a large capacitor across the relay coil slows it. Start with 100uF. The on time is enough for current to build up properly (dwell time in cars) and the off until ready for the next spark. Here is a suitable relay. With 5 pulses a second it might last a few hours of continuous operation under these conditions (100,000 contact operations) but this is a much better quality than most. That is the incentive to get away from contacts.

      Modern ignition coils can be used too, but these are intended for electronic drive. There are “Jacobs Ladder” drivers using proper electronics and one of these. The reason so many have trouble with electronic types is they are not designed properly. A 2N3055 transistor thrown in with a 555 timer does not cut it for an ignition coil driver, but for a relay driver, something like this this may be fine. I have to say electronics around ignition coils can be a hassle. It needs to be in its own grounded metal box really, and the battery leads need to be filtered, etc.etc. A 2 x 555 timer arrangement is attractive to act as a relay driver, because it can be used to adjust the speed, and yet maintain the preset dwell angle, simply and cheaply with a single knob.
      This circuit is a basic timer circuit, just put the relay where the coil is.

      This is an article that does work properly, but you need to read the text. It uses a special device suitable for switching the coil (IGBT). The ignition coil is a common type in Australia and the US (GM cars I think).
