In this video I experiment with Lenz's Law And Faraday's Law of Induction to generate electricity and magnetic force fields in copper. Check out my sponsor Brilliant for a really fun way to learn! www.Brilliant.org/NightHawk
To read more about Lenz & Faraday's Laws see the following links:

At 1:37 , you said "...there is no attraction, nor repulsion...". Wrong. There is attraction or repulsion, depending whether magnet goes toward copper clad or away. Copper is good conductor and magnet generates eddy current, which in turn produce exactly 'mirrored' magnetic field when magnet approaches the surface of the copper. When magnet going away from the copper, you can feel resistance because then magnetic field 'flip'. Still somewhat 'mirrored', but as a 'negative', or in reverse. When magnet going toward copper, north produces eddy current that produces north pole in copper. When you pull magnet from the surface, north pole produces south pole - which attract or as you said - make a feeling of the resistance. When stationary, no eddy current.

Get picky you said copper clad he said copper plate word picking we can all do that careful of being over critical you are not perfect either

This is correct, although you could have worded it in a way that doesn't make you like a jerk.

Milan Karakas There is no magnetic attraction between copper and a magnet, period. The phenomenon exists only when one or the other material is in motion, within a certain distance , which generates a magnetic field. No motion, no field, no attraction.

Dekhne ke liye kya meri phone udda denge. Koi EMP generate karenge. Ya batter overload karenge. Woh sab to badi sat lul update kar rahe hai inko feeling mangta. Power ka. Lund bhi na hai. Roflmao

I was gonna ask "so what if you fired a magnetic pullet at solid copper?" but then I saw your Magnet Cannon video on the suggestions bar.

Such method of braking can be used on aircraft carriers. It can prevent a cars collision also.

along with the laws, one can also search for eddy current as well😊. That will explain a lot.

It's nice that the resistance is proportional to the speed and how close the magnet is. Seems good for a motion control algorithm 🤔

Copper is magnetic, slightly magnetic. But it does interact with magnets. Copper is Diamagnetic, The magnetic lines of force tend to go around them instead of through them

0:50 it's called eletromagnetivity the magnet creates an eletrical current that passes through the copper When that happens, the copper behaves like a magnet, because of the magnetic field created by the eletrical corrent

If you shot a neodymium bullet at a lump of copper, do you think the copper would cause it to stop mid air, just before it hit the surface? Of course... while being heated by a larger amount?

Lenz law: " direction of the current induced in a conductor by a changing magnetic field is such that the magnetic field created by the induced current opposes the initial changing magnetic field."

Why do some people think that they can do an "AMAZING" video by treating everyone like they are stupid( politically corrected " uninformed")!! A moving or a variation of the magnet field produces an ELECTRICAL current in all metals. A metal that produces an electrical field also produces a MAGNETIC FIELD!! Usually opposite which is know by CMF "Counter Electromotive Force". Soo explain why copper and aluminium are used in transformers!!

be a little pricey but have you tried it with gold i'd like to see how it differs, is there a better conductor than gold, that's not toxic or radioactive you could try

I didn't know this, but a lotta people say I have a "natural ability' for science". They say these things. So i DID know this but didn't. We have the best magnets and copper plates, and we're doing great things with them. Tremendous. #voteforme2020

Yes!...finally!,now this is true and proper science at its best! Unlike pseudo sciences like geology, theoretical and Astro physics which are based on biased and unprovable guesses and assumptions! this is true science which is tried and true and is based on unchanging repeatable facts! Thank you!

So we can have free electricity if we have a magnet doing 360 by it self so it can generate electricity

that is so cool. i been having a rough time trying to figure out how a magnet will react with copper when its just the 2 materials. you helped me out a lot when you did the reaction that generates power. tho its a small amount, that just gave me the enlightenment i needed lol. thanks!

Could they use this for elevator breaks fails? As in the normal cable or motor break causing the carriage to free fall. Placing 4 magnets at the corners of the carriage with thick copper plates along the sides for the final floor with 4 plates directly under the corners at the bottom of the shaft. Would this work as a backup to slow and safely bring the carriage to a stop?
