Introduction: Simple Motor

I was looking how to make simple machines and i came across one that didn't work out so i modified it and it actually worked.


:( P.S. I'm gona upload more pics soon:)

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies:

1) AA battery
2) copper wire
3) Neodymium magnet

( If you need to know a place to find the magnets here it is: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200328195_200328195 they sell them in 6 pieces.)

4) multimeter

Step 2: Step 1

Take the multimeter and test the battery under (DCV) 2v make sure it's at least 1.400v.

Step 3: Step 3

Put the magnet on the negative side of the battery.

Step 4: Step 4

take the wire and bend it at the top to touch the positive side then twist it down to the magnet making sure that it doesn't touch the sides of the battery only the magnet.
