Product Details

Seeing “inside” an electric motor as it operates is a real attention-getter. All the parts are clearly visible so you can show each component of a motor or generator in operation. This remarkable teaching tool comes with instructions for performing experiments in these areas:
1. Transformation of electrical to rotational mechanical energy.
2. Transformation of rotational mechanical energy to electrical energy.
3. Forces of magnetic field interactions.
4. Force on a current-carrying wire.
5. Electromagnetic induction in a conductor.
6. Induced electromotive force on an existing current.

Requires a low-voltage DC power supply.
