Magnetic Levitation

Magnetic levitation trains

This paper involves the design, hardware, technology, application and future uses of “Magnetic levitation trains.” The maglev transportation system is more stable, faster, efficient and economic. Maglev systems are currently in use for applications such as bearings, high- speed trains, and manufacturing. Maglev is a method of propulsion that uses magnetic levitation to propel vehicles …

How Magnets Are Made

The lodestone, is a natural permanent magnet. Other permanent magnets can be made by subjecting certain materials to a magnetic force. When the force is removed, these materials retain their own magnetic properties. They are made by surrounding certain materials with a coil of wire. The first thing that was made out of lodestone was …

Superconductors: Their History And Uses In Factories

SUPERCONDUCTIVITY The definition of superconductivity. Superconductivity is a phenomenon displayed by certain conductors that show no resistance to the flow of electric current. Conductors are materials in which the electron current goes through. There are 4 different kinds of conductors. Insulators, like glass or wood, have a very high resistance while semi-conductors, such as silicon, …
