Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Yes, it does matter, because if it's too close, it sticks to the armature, but if it is too far, it doesn't effect it. How close of the magnets face the armature? It does matter, because if it was northand north, it would repel, causing it to not move at all. Also, we noticed that if we turned the magnet, the armature stopped spinning Things we did to try to turn the motor: - We tried using more than one magnets- We tried to position the magnet differently- Make sure all metals are touching one another- Use more batteries We learned that motors only work when all parts are connected, and sometimes you need more battery to get it to work. But how does a motor work? Here's how: the battery makes its way through the wires and reaches the motor.To be more specific, the brush carries the currents to the commutator, and the commutator reverses current. That way, the motor spins. Things we did to try to change motor's direction: - Change the armature's position- Swap the switch at the battery How does a motor work? How did we control the speed and the direction which the motor spins? We controlled the speed by putting the magnet further away from the armature, and lessening the force. For the direction, we tried swapping the wiresclipping the magnet. There a lots of things that the motor can do. One thing could be an electric fan, because a fan spins and you can clearly see the motor in the middle, making the fan spin and produce wind. Does it matter the magnets are to the armature? What kind of work do you think a motor (the one that we experimented with) could do? WOKRING WITH MOTORS Does it matter Which poles Think of another system that uses multiple motors. Write a description of what different motors do. A car uses multiple motors. Wheel is one motor. Wheel spins, making the car move. Not only the wheel, but there are so many other motors on the car, each motor contributing its function as a whole. By: Emily and Konrad
