Correspondingly, how does a simple Homopolar motor work?
Homopolar Motor is one that uses direct currentto power rotational movement, such as that generated by a battery.A conductor with a current flowing through it when placed in amagnetic field which is perpendicular to the current feels a forcein the direction perpendicular to both the magnetic field and thecurrent.
Also Know, what is a homopolar motor used for? Plating. The most common use of homopolarmotors is in generators that are installed in electroplatingprocess plants. The generators use direct current (DC) andlow voltage, but the current in the motors is high enough tooperate the heavy machinery.
In this way, why did Michael Faraday invent the motor?
Michael Faraday discovered thatelectricity could be made by moving a magnet inside a wirecoil, he was able to build the first electric motor. Helater built the first generator and transformer.
Why does copper wire spin on a battery?
Copper is a metal that conducts electricity. So,electricity flowed from the positive end of the battery tothe negative end, through the battery, into the wire,up the wire, and back into the positive end of thebattery! These opposing forces cause an outward motion onthe wire – causing it to spin around themagnet.
