TITLE: MAGNETIC LEVITATION ON PENCIL
AUTHOR: Jaz Christine Milliscent M. Olequino
This study aimed to show a simple magnetic levitation on pencil. Magnetic levitation technology has shown a great deal of promise for micromanipulation tasks.
Through the use of library and web research, the research determined the different poles of a magnet, Identify and classify objects and materials that a magnet will attract and objects and materials that a magnet will not attract and the reaction of magnets when placed next to the same/opposite poles.
The descriptive method of research through survey was used in this study. The data gathered in the research was carefully documented and analyzed to attain valid conclusions.
The result of the study was trusted to be significant to the students, teachers, parents, text book writers and publishers since the findings of this study will lead her to pay needed attention in the magnetic levitation on pencil. After the analysis and interpretation of gathered data, the researcher determined that all magnets have North-seeking(N) and South-seeking(S) poles. When magnets are placed near each other, opposite poles attract and similar poles repel each other.
Lastly, the researcher recommended continued reading about magnetic levitation in order her to learn how magnets interact with each other when the same and opposite poles are placed in close proximity.
THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
You must have seen a magician float or levitate an object in air. Well, you too can do something similar using magnets! A great project with an amazing feature is featured by this levitation using simple a pencil and some ring magnets. Magnets always have two poles, come in various shape, and attract or repel other magnets. An interesting characteristics of magnets is that when you cut a magnet into parts, each part will have both N and S poles.
Magnetic levitation is a system by which an object is suspended in air without any support except that of magnetic fields. It is also known as Maglev. The force of gravity is encountered by magnetic pressure.
When two magnets are placed one on top of the other such that similar poles are adjoining, these poles repel each other and the magnet on top floats or levitates. Magnetic Levitation is used in high speed Maglev trains.
Magnetic levitation, maglev, or magnetic suspension is a method by which an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic field. Magnetic pressure is used to counteract the effects of the gravitational and any other accelerations.
Earnshaw’s theorem proves that using only ferromagnetic or paramagnetic materials it is impossible to stably levitate against gravity, but servomechanisms, the use of diamagnetic materials, super conduction ,or systems involving eddy currents permit this to occur.
In some cases the lifting force is provided by magnetic levitation, but there is a mechanical support bearing little load that provides stability. This is termed Pseudo-levitation.
Statement of the Problem
