I stick a bunch of magnets to the flywheel of a diesel engine to show off some cool science.

  • You should try a Halbach array to melt your bullet. It focuses the magnetic fields on one side of the magnets. Kind of like if you had used a series of horseshoe magnets put shoulder to shoulder on your wheel.

  • This guy has a flir cam and I'd probably be correct to assume he also owns an IR thermometer, yet he still says things like " I'd estimate the bullet only got to around 100°c." Why the hell are you estimating when you have access to precision measuring equipment? You shouldn't have to estimate anything.

  • Great stuff but I'm sorry, I don't understand why they'd make devices with thinner metal leaves if the reasoning is for more electronic dissipation? Maybe I misunderstood the point in these things, I've forgotten the name of those things anyway. Transformers? It is late so I'm tired mind. I find electronics and magnet associations confusing lol but you explain great

  • you might not have considered it ... But the heat is also absorbed by the wood to some extent and if you have got hot enough to melt Lead... The wood would have caught fire as well...

  • So if we put two rotating flywheels going in opposite directions on top of each other, both surrounded by magnets as you’ve done here, then got an iron pipe let’s say the diameter of a little bigger than the bullet and wrapped that iron pipe in copper wire, held the bullet with a rudimentary design like an Allen screw tapped into the side, charged the pipe and released the bullet at full rpm, we could possibly make a homage railgun. And make it even more powerful with a car battery and an on/off switch

  • I have heard and have heard people say on wedding videos that ceramic magnets are better for inducing electromagnetic flux into a coil the neodymium that raw magnetic strength isn't the only Factor something about the shape of the flux mix ceramic magnets better I don't know if this is true I don't know the exact science behind it cuz it's only something that I heard and tucked away in my brain somewhere I've never considered why I don't even know like I said if it's true or not just my two cents what do you think about that hypothesis? Since you've done needs experiment and I have not is there any truth to this?

  • There's a real-world application for this: Someone designed a lamp for places where electricity doesn't arrive. The lamp has an open chain that goes through some gears and you attach a weight to one of the sides which pulls it down very slowly, just like in those old cuckoo clocks. The weight does gradually fall down and this gives a spinning motion that generates electricity to power a light bulb just like in your video but using the force of gravity instead of a diesel engine. The insides are designed so there's a lot of resistance and it lasts for 4-5 hours before you have to change the weight to the other side of the chain.
