Making a simple magnetic train

Today we are going to learn a simple trick by which we can understand how electricity interacts with magnets.

Things required

  • Copper wire (uncoated) : 20 meters
  • Duracell AA battery : 1
  • Neodymium magnets : 4
  • Aluminium foil : 1 sheet
  • Basic tools like cello tape, scissors and glue.

The video below is self explanatory in context to steps involved in making. Enjoy 🙂

How this works is bit of a puzzle for all the students. You can send your observations to [email protected] and we can discuss this over there.

You can the following video as a hint though. 🙂
