Building a small electric motor with copper wire, a neodymium magnet, and an AA battery.
How To Build a Simple Electric Motor.
You will need:
- A piece of wood
- 1 AA Battery
- A little Neodymium magnet
- Insulated copper wire
- Scotch tape
The piece of cardboard
You can use wood or a piece of cardboard, just make sure it is stable and does not bend easily.
One AA battery is enough, you can use another type but then make sure the diameter of the coil is the correct size.
This is the hardest piece to find, you can get it on RadioSack, Amazon, Ebay or just to get the magnets from some headphones or a old radio speakers.
Insulated copper wire
I used copper wire from an old network cable, is 26 or 28 AWG (0.51 mm diameter) .
