Building a genertor? Answered

I have a 5sme22nj028a general electric motor and wanted to buld a generator. It is 10 pin (not including earth). I have used a voltmeter to see what generate but there are many combonations and they all seem to generate. Also it is brushless. I have posted this question before but fogort to include that the motor says varable speed on the side. I was thinking that connecting diffrent pins would make the motor go at diffrent speeds. In my other question someone said that it may need a mirco prosser before it. I think that this is probaly the case but wanted to see if anyone knew about this motor. So if it needs or doesnt need a micro prosessor before it, please tell me. I should be able to work it out from there. Thanks

What I think I need is some sort of differential gearbox. What Ii need to know is: Is there is a differential that can take 2 different input speeds and have one output? If it did and I also pushed it with a motor would the wheels spinning feed back though the gearbox and send the pedals spinning like crazy? Any help or advice people can offer would be great.

I need help with building a LED flashlight

I have been building this 9volt LED flashlight but I used this LED resistor calculator and it came up with a diffrent resistor then was noted in the instructable, I bought these two leds at radio shack and a 150-Ohm 1/2 watt 5% tolerance resistor (Brown Green Brown Gold). The LED lights light up but they are not bright like a flashlight and can only be seen in the dark if you put your hand up close. Im wondering where I went wrong? This is my first time working with LEDs, Maybe the radioshack LED's are just crappy? Or do you think I got the wrong resistor?Thanks,Nick

What would happen if the Internet were to fall?

With all the terrorism stuff going on, I've always wandered what would be next.Ever since 9/11, I always asked myself were they would strike next, because they certainly did not intend to stop there.My guesses have been that they would probably strike at either:1) Elections - Either at the thing were they welcome the new president (sorry don't know much bout U.S. polimatics)2) Beijing Olympics - Its an important event3) Internet:I came to realize that one of the worst things that they could do was attack the internet. I figured that one of these methods could be used:Multiple malware methods. They could attack individual computers with wormsSomehow attacking diffrent countries methods of connection, being either telephone companies or whatever other methods they use (like those China underwater tube things)* But my best guess would be that they would strike important service providing companies. They would destroy the companies methods (satellites, cable mainframe stuff etc...)I would like this forum to have the porpose of disscussing terrorism issues and future issues like oil and so on. But mainly, what would happen if somehow, they attacked the internet?Sure hope none of them read this, cuz if they didn't have this idea, now they would....P.S. sorry, Im nt good with techie, so some of my points may not me accurate or clear.

Maximum/minimum ampere input in a circuit, help needed.

To start of my question im going to say i don't know a lot of electronics and that I am norwegian( so please excuse typos in english) :) I have not done many major projects inside the field of electronics other than making a lightbulb light up. using a battery and to wires.. But I am very interseted in electonics ad think it is very exiting to read about.  As my first "real" project i decided to make a "lie detector", altough it is mostly just a circuit that measures the resistance in your skin and makes a beeping sound after how much resistance your skin has( Dry skin = low resistance vs wet/sweaty skin = much resistance). AND I DID IT! i made it work, and i was so proud! Then I realized that it was actually kinda lame and the beebing noise was wery annoying. So I decided to make a display that displayed a value after how much resistance your skin held. I managed to make a seven segment display from scratch. But now I am stuck... You see the circuit gives an output of amps so it will output more amps on wet skin than on dry skin. But I have to "program"  the circuit to make the numbers on my display change. I want preferably to be able to do this without any IC's. So my question is there possible to make a circuit that will allow current to pass through one circuit, but if the current is high enough it will take another way? I tried to use diffrent resistors, but I didnt take into count that electricity only takes the road of least resistance no matter..

Hi im building a vivarium for my fat-tail geckos the standerd 1s boar me so i wont something diffrent so i need some help. The viv i have no problems with im already in the middle of the build its just the electrics i cant do. i have an idea it just seeing if it can be done or something neater or similer . At the minut im useing a plastic vivarium with items (3), (5), (6). But item (5) the manul timer is being use instead of item (2) The Microclimate day/night dimming Thermostat as the manual timer is a cheaper option and using it to turn the mat on and off to regulate the temp...... So what im trying to do is have Some thing like item (1) useing this as the main controller . This is what im after :Item (1),(2),(3)(4),(6) in 1 neat package well to run off 1 plug ... I was going to use a fan controller (pc) as this already has 3-5 small neat temp sencers and reads temps and the fan controller disply would looks cool and small and its 12v like the LCD lights ..and was going to use the the fan controller knobs to control White/Blue LCD Lights to turn then on and off ie:White for day and Blue for the night .and 1 of the other control knobs as my be a dimmer switch for the heat mat ...I think ive put that as id like it .. ( Sorry im dyslexics if spelling and dosent make sence in place's) Thanks hope some 1 can help . Oh im rubbish with electrics and forgot to mention that my viv is getting wall mounted as the need for 1 plug.

Keith-Kid's version of: The Hitchhikers guide to.. The Earth!

I just read this forum topic, and wondered why it didn't go anywhere.I read all the negative and positive comments on it. I still think it is a great idea and a great way to get the community to work together even more.Quote from the original post: So here's the idea.I've been thinking how cool it would be to do a collaboration and create a giant travel guide. But not just an ordinary travel guide, one written by all instructables members.We have enough people on this site that we could get a pretty good start on it. I think the idea would spread fairly quickly.For example, I would write a brief something or other about my state (North Carolina), and then a full length guide for Boone, the university town that I live in. I would include basic information like population, size, etc., and also where I like to eat, what kind of tourist attractions are here, why ASU beat Michigan, etc. Some one else could add to what I wrote, and someone else could add a guide for the Charlotte/Denver area, and so on. For another state/province someone would just add a new step, etc.I realize it wouldn't be an Instructable, in the strict sense, but it would be helpful nonetheless. Not to mention we could have a lot of fun with it.What do you all think?What do the Instructables staff think about something like this? (In light of the fact that this is not a step by step guide to any one thing)Let the discussion begin. =)i know a lot of people would argue that this is a DIY site, not a travel site. And I know there are tons of other sites like this. But here are a few of my points about why this would be a good idea:Great way to get the community even more unitedAlthough wiki...whatever it was is great, anyone can edit and erase stuff. Instructables has a very careful community that watches out for this sort of thing. Not to mention the higher quality that comes from an entire community that cares, not just one or two honest people out of 100 prankstersGreat way to learn about diffrent cultures and interact with them. Instructables has helped me a lot in my school work. I've learned a bit from UK from kiteman, and a lot of people know that I ask for a lot of homework help in the forums! My point is that this site is mainly a self improvement center, not just for a house or project, all these things just help improve ourselvesI'm thinking that each step could be a place. If there are a lot of things from one same place, there would be a couple of different steps.We could have an index in the intro that links to each country's steps.We could provide a bit of history, culture, society and Pictures!Ok now you can talk
