Motor

 

Bring the armature to the last on campus meeting. Yes all materials will be turned in before then, but the armature isn't something to be left in the kit.

 

The biggest problems with the motor are:

1. Completely removing the insulation from the wire as
indicated in the drawing - the wire will have a bright
metallic look when the insulation has been removed.

 

2. While holding the armature, by the wires extending
from the loop, in both hands make sure the armature
is balanced and will rotate freely.

 

3. When the armature is in place above the magnet on
the battery make sure the scraped or insulation free
portion of the armature is in contact with the paper clips.

Please post your progress to the Discussion Board.
