Okay, so recently I’ve been starting thinking about building a miniature magnetic engine (not electromagnetic/electric, just purely magnets) And I’ve got the magnets sitting here, and I conceptualized what it’ll look like. So I’m in need of some critique on mostly “work”-ability, this is not meant to be a beautiful work of art model. So any of you physics fanatics or just people that have a great general knowledge of things, let me know what I should change or improve about it. Now time for a picture and description.
Okay, the outside, semi-circle shape is composed of the ‘drive’ magnets (the ones that actually apply the force) In a full model, it would be able to swivel around the very bottom part of it to change the amount of force being applied to control acceleration.
The inner 2-part circle is composed of the magnets that would be attached to the drive shaft of whatever it’s operating. The magnets are slightly staggered because otherwise the drive magnets would just stop it half way in between them.
Well, this is about all I can say, please give me feedback. Thanks.
