Step 1: Step 1:Putting It Together

Attach the two magnets to the battery.Then twist the wire into a heart shaped piece and try to connect both ends to the battery.Make adjustments as needed.Once it looks like the image above it should start to spin.If it doesn't it is possible you may have a dead battery or you need to reduce the friction between the wire and the magnets. Now you don't not have a Homo-polar Motor. )( :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):(:):):):):)
