A magnetohydrodynamic generator has been described as a magnet on the tail of a jet engine. A super-hot plasma is created, ionizing the atoms of the fuel mixture.
A simple activity about magnetism. All you need is a sewing needle, a magnet, a pair of pliers, a cork, scissors, a cup or bowl and water.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation or TMS alters the activity of the brain allowing certain parts of the brain to be temporarily deactivated.
As part of the Internet Plasma Physics Education eXperience (IPPEX) project, the purpose of this program is to demonstrate the difficulty of trying to contain a plasma inside a tokamak by using ...
The site demonstrates the effect of a magnet field when introduced on a conducting wire.
A long straight coil of wire can be used to generate a nearly uniform magnetic field similar to that of a bar magnet. Such coils, called solenoids, have an enormous number of practical applications.
Description of the first particle detector of its type at Brookhaven in which the chamber through which the particles passed was surrounded by a superconducting magnet.
A moveable diagram including current flow and magnetic field lines that shows how the movement of a bar magnet influences the induced current in a stationary conductor.
Graph of resistance against temperature for YBCO, and two short movies of a magnet levitating above a superconductor. Great fun to see the movies - understanding how this happens is more challenging
A grape is repelled by both the north and south poles of a strong rare-earth magnet. The grape is repelled because it contains water, which is diamagnetic.
