How To Generate Free Electricity Using Magnet To Light Up Your Room And Charge Phones
To generate electricity using a magnet, it is very easy and simple. I think with, soon electricity will take a new dimension.
I believe you are reading this because you want to make your own electricity? Follow this step-by-step guide to making your own generator.
What is a generator?
A generator is a device or machine that can convert mechanical energy derived from natural gas, wind, water, or other sources into electrical energy. Here, I am going to describe or explain how to use available materials (such as magnet, motorcycle spark plugs) to create a simple generator.
The generator will only be powerful enough to light a solar bulb.
How a generator works
When an electric current flows through a wire or a conductor, it generates a three-dimensional magnetic force field around the wire, similar to that surrounding a bar magnet.
Magnets are also surrounded by a similar three-dimensional field. This can be ‘seen’ in two dimensions if iron filings are sprinkled on a paper placed over the magnet. The filings align themselves along the lines of magnetic force surrounding the magnet.
The simplest generator consists of just a coil of wire and a bar magnet. When you push the magnet through the middle of the coil, an electric current is produced in the wire. The current flows in one direction as the magnet is pushed in, and in the other direction as the magnet is removed. In other words, an alternating current is produced. If you hold the magnet absolutely still inside the coil, no current is generated at all. Another way of producing the current would be for the magnet to be rotated inside the coil, or for the coil to be rotated round the magnet.
” This method of generating electricity, named induction, was discovered by Michael Faraday in 1831. He establishes that the stronger the magnets were, the more turns of wire in the coil, and the quicker the motion of the magnet or coil, the greater the voltage produced. Faraday also identified that it was more efficient if the coil was wound around a metal core, as this helped to concentrate the magnetic field.”
To make this generator, below are what you need.
1. A motorcycle spark plug
2. Electric wires
3. A board
4. A solar bulb
5. A lamp holder
6. Glue to hold the materials to the board.
1. Place the two motorcycle plugs on the board and glue it.
2. Connect two wires to the lamp holder and glue it to the board.
3. Further, connect the wires to the two plugs.
4. Fix your bulb (solar bulb) to the lamp holder.
Place your magnet in between the two motorcycle plugs and see your bulb right up.
