Abstract : As the world continues to grow and as cities continues to become more crowded and congested, our normal modes of transportation will not be able to handle these overpopulated areas.
The answer to this transportation problem lies in the world of electro magnetism and superconducting magnets.
Electromagnets and superconducting magnets have allowed us to create a magnetic levitation train nicknamed “MAGLEV” that floats on the track instead of being directly on it.
This has a lot of potential to create trains that are fast with low maintenance requirements. This experiment in an attempt to make a levitation train; propose of this project is to find the effect of load or total weight on the friction force in a levitation train.
In regular cars trains and boats the friction will increase with load. We are wondering is the same will happen with the levitation trains.
Using two long magnetic strips as rails; glue them to a long piece of wood (as a base or ground) in a way that the North side of the magnetic strip stays up and also using a smaller piece of wood as a train and in the same way glue two magnetic strips at the bottom of the train.
If the train is placed on the rail it should levitate because the North Pole of rail and train magnets is faced to each other. The train might slide to the left or right and that also can be controlled by side rails.
The experiment demonstrates the like poles repelling principle of magnetism. The repelling force of two magnets when same poles face each other varies by the distance of magnets.
The repelling force increases when two magnets get closer to each other.
Magnet levitation has practical application to today's technologically-advanced world as maglev trains glide above magnetically charged-tracks at high speeds and the trains have less wear and tear as there are no tracks to create the friction.
