Barlow's Wheel

SKU PH0843
  • Barlow's wheel is a historical demonstration experiment of Lorentz force generated by currents flowing between the polar expansions of a magnet.
  • The item is equipped with neodinium-ironboron magnets that generate a strong magnetic field over the wheel that is therefore set in motion when crossed by currents.
  • Barlow's Wheels is an impressive piece of apparatus constituted by a wheel on low friction suspensions.
  • Wheel does not spin when batteries are installed - This demonstrates the magnetic resistance due to electricity being applied
  • 4 AA batteries are required for operation of the Barlow Batteries not included
