Instructables
Picture of Magnetic Motor Based On Power Difference
Hey all, now this is my first instructable, it's not really the same as others but it explains an idea of an instructable that can be made by anyone. I know it will be annoying but the steps aren't steps of work but they are parts of explanation of an idea that came to my mind.
The old classic idea of free energy have been around since long time ago, lots of inventors have been dedicated to this obsessive quest to construct the ultimate energy machine that will give us FREE ENERGY. Unfortunately all the designs and machines that have been made never worked, they're just there on the shelf as evidences for human obsession with control over matter and energy, some wanted to harness gravity power to give useful energy, others thought about those mysterious stones that can attract metallic objects MAGNETS, but all that isn't wrong at all, it just needed to be placed in the right place, in the right structure.

Step 1: General

Every where you look at an energy device, you see two things, conversion and GPD ( general potential difference ). Take the battery for example, it CONVERTS chemical energy into electrical energy, that produces a POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE of 1.5 volts.
Take another example, the dam that produces electricity from river water, the water level DIFFERENCE makes water flow from side to the other through the dam which turns the dynamos to CONVERT mechanical into electricity, And lots of other examples...

Step 2: Getting Specific

So it's all based on conversion and potential difference, so how can we find these two things in a magnetic motor, almost all current designs of magnetic motors don't contain either or both of the two main elements, so how do we expect it to run??

Step 3: Wrong Principle Of Classic Magnetic Motors

According to the photo above, you can see that the magnets may give us 100J of power while they're being attracted to each other, but on the other way, we need 100J to separate them and put them in the original state, and maybe more energy is needed to reset them when considering friction, so it's a loss of energy..

Ahh I got your point, the shielding is actually just a half part of a rotating disk made of any other non-shielding material, so the energy required is only to rotate the disk, so it won't take much energy. And in general, I think the energy of two neodymium magnets trying to attract or repel each other would be much more than enough to work this mechanism and give extra energy, but as usual the only problem is finding such material, but, as I lately found, that if the universe is really that stable, no rule can be broken, and no free energy is possible, well then, I think this material is just impossible to exist, because simply its existing violates physics rules..

I'm really happy that you liked my instructable, I didn't understand what you mean by that the structure required to make magnet force usable require too much energy. While about friction, it doesn't matter a lot since there will be an excess of energy ( according to the idea ) and even with friction, there will be energy produced by the mechine, just like a normal fuel engine, there's still friction, but it still work.

What I am trying to say is that any type of mechanism that you devise in order to used the magnet's properties of repulsion and attraction will itself use up most of the energy. Let's use your own example. The shielding you mentioned may actually save you 93 joules by absorbing much of the magnetics but how much energy will it require to move that shielding back and forth? If the shielding is static and requires no energy to move it then you have accomplished nothinhg because it will block both the replusive and attractive magnetism - right?

I am certainly no expert and I'm far from the smartest one on this site but I do have a little experience in magnets. The big problem in harnessing the energy they contain is exactly what I tried to explain above. Maybe if we had access to some of the more cutting edge ceramic bearings (99.9% friction free) and other things we could make a magnet motor that actually works...

We need more people like you.. people who not only think about this stuff, but people that attempt to make their ideas work. That's the only way to find out.

thanks

As a self-professed "free energy" fanatic, tinkerer, and someone who prides themselves on their ability to think outside of the box, I was quite happy to see this instructable - thanks.

The problem with magnets, and specifically using their inherent attraction/resistence "power" is that the structure required to make this force usable requires too much energy and negates any energy gain. Friction is the enemy.. and like gravity, never takes a day off...

I think austenitic stainless steel does not interact with magnetic field but it has a magnetic permeability of 1 ( near space permeability ), on the other hand, I've found so far the nearest material at room temperature that has near properties of a superconductor that is pyrolytic carbon, it's diamagnetic and it levitate on magnets, so it could be a good -at room temperature- magnetic shield I guess..

I think the problem here lies with the fact that your design requires a "magnetic shield" that prevents the magnetic field from passing through it AND doesn't interact with the magnet itself. I don't think any known thing exists that meets both of those two requirements.

Firstly, you can try stainless steel as a shield. Magnets do not stick to some grades of stainless steel. I do not know if it would stop the magnets from being attracted to one another.
Secondly, I do not think a gearbox would be the right way to go. It would be very inefficient and for this to work you would have to have as little drag as possible on the flywheel because the flywheel would have to "push" the motor into the second stroke (for lack of a better explanation).
Interesting idea, would like to see if you could make it work.

Never heard of non magnetic stainless steel. Steel il 98% (or more) made of iron so...

I've only seen steel getting non-magnetic above 800° C 'cause the internal structure changes. Dunno if you can "freeze" it that wa without needing heat

Austenitic stainless steels are non-magnetic.

Right !! Does this also mean that it stops the magnetic field?

MCrous EmcySquare2 months ago
Not sure if it does, but that is what i said in my comment. Will test it and let you know :)

if that could be done we would perpetual motion. Great idea and their is some logic that supports it. If you use iron to shield one field from another field, yes it would effectively isolate each magnet for short time, but it creates a field of its own and that attraction has to be broken. please excuse this example as being completely simplistic.
I think your thinking and logic are great. Most people do not question these issues, or once they read it's impossible, or its breaks the law of X, they stop. if a law or a force in science is broken we redefine that law, the world doesn't end. in fact it's how our knowledge and understanding grow. It was once thought that only birds/insects could fly, it was against the laws of nature. once that was proven wrong it went to man could not fly using only his/her own power. That through complex gearing etc was proven wrong. I say keep thinking were there is a will there is a way. Superconductors offer a possible solution, however, they are very difficult for the hobbyist to use.

It will not work. This clever design breacks thermodynamic laws. The shields are necessarily metalic, are in movement and will have internal electrical currents that will do a force opposite to ita movement. Total work will be zero.
But don't stop. Keep on studying physics!

Yeah each metal has a point where it turns non magnetic I guess, it's called curie point, but not shielding, for iron I think it's 1027°C and nickel is about 830°C so that won't be useful
