How to power a light with a car alternator? Answered
I have made a system where i have a car alternator attached to a stool. Attached aroung the wheel of the alternator is medical tubing wrapped around a wheel. This wheel is held up by two pieces of wood. I have attached handles on either side of the wheel. On the alternator where the power is dispersed, I have soldered wires to an 1.5 Volt light. I am spinning the wheel left and right. But, it will not light the light. So the questions that I am asking are, which way do I need to spin the alternator wheel if I was looking at the wheel from the front, and how fast I need to spin the wheel. Any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks!
