In this project, you can experience how an electric motor works and how to make it. This project is great for a makerspace or mechanical engineering challenge at school, library, or home.
Once you learn the basics, you can experiment with different body styles and designs to make a high RPM(round per minute) motor. You can also set up a competition between friends to see who can build an efficient electric motor. Make STEM education fun!
- paper pins
- crocodile clip with wire
- Pvc pipe cap
- 30 gauge copper wire coil
- 22 gauge copper wire coil
Note: All material is available in science store inventor box https://sciencestore.pk/product/inventor-box/
Step 1: Coil Wounding
Take 30 gauge copper wire and wound on PVC pipe cap. Make 100 turn copper coil
Step 2: Remove Insulation
Then remove the insulation layer of the coil with the help of scissors.
Step 3: Making Central Axle
Take two pieces of copper wire of 22 gauge
Make a central axle on a coil with help of 22 gauge copper wire
Step 4: Making Hook Stands
Make two hooks of the paper pins with the help of the nose plier. Make sure the length of the hook is greater than the copper coil.
Step 5: Mount the coil
Attach the hook on the cardboard and pass the copper coil in it.
Step 6: Place Magnet
Place a magnet on the cardboard just below the copper coil
Step 7: Wiring
Attach one end of crocodile clip with battery and other wire with hook stand
Step 8: Testing
Now your electric motor is ready for the test
