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.
define what the field of resistance is made of and how it works for me?

So you're saying if you added an on/off switch to the copper wire coil, you could turn the "slow down effect" on and off?

​@NightHawkInLight Thanks for the reply. I just have one more question/comment. You say at 4:42 that roller coasters use electromagnets for braking. That is simply incorrect. They in fact just use fins of copper/aluminum alloys that travel in between permanent magnets. Sorry to nitpick. Loved the video. Thanks for replying! Cheers, Chris

Copper is non magnetic. You must introduce a moving magnetic field and it will generate a magnetic field due to electricity

There is conversion of gravitational potential energy to kinetic energy. As the magnet enters the coiled wire at 2.43. The plastic support is bent as the coil resists the movement of the magnet.

I setup a row of quarter sized magnets and they’re setup to oppose each other. Use duct tape to squeeze them together in opposition. I got a 12 magnet row barely stuck together using this method. I was told a few of these around the belt line will place a magnetic field around you repelling 5G gig freqs. Is this valid?

Electro-magnetics defy gravity, so I guess that means gravity is electromagnetic?
Jensen Day ago
not sure if your joking or not, but if your not then answer is no, lenz law applies when gravity is taken out of the equation and is a result of conservation of energy

2:28 must be one of those 101 lb pull magnets from walmart. I bought a pack of 6 small , disc magnets and could only get 230mV from the coil . The magnet I have won't move metal sitting a few feet away.

I wonder if the copper and magnet interaction could be used in such a way to break through the wall in a perpetual rotation device. Just a thought

curious what would happen if we lined run ways with thick copper and put those strong electric magnets in the planes and used it as a anti crash system, it'd super expensive but i wonder

How is electric magnet field going to fly into another magnetic field? Wouldn't that be 'gay' energy?

This is how the human body moves along the surface of Earth. The copper wire is our circulatory system and our nervous system is the magnet. Anti-gravitational propulsion via human body😂😂.

I have one question, can we have the opposite thing, that we stop copper with magnets, or we can just stop magnets with copper?

plz let know this : if you replace copper with silver ( or carbon / graphene ), will magnet behave similarly or even strongly as silver is a better conductor of electricity ?

2:51 - That must be plenty of wire. I have a coil about 1/4" thick. With Magnet 7 (6 of them) I was able to get 70 mV from it. I guess I need more wire and possibly a larger magnet. I get more voltage with more windings and small thickness wire - 200 mV

This is why the bible is only one book and covers what god thought important. It would take a million trillion books to explain the laws he set in the universe.

Your god is, at best, flagrantly incompetent. At worst, wantonly malevolent. Not worth worshipping in any case, especially going by the contents of the bible. Which version of the Bible, by the way? King James perhaps?

Actually people reading this my name is Rachael Miller. My grandpa was not a liar and the public needs to know that. Please watch Boyd bushmans videos and remember the name beacuse Chances are RUvid’s will take this down after I post this comment. Please watch as many of his videos as you can before they are taken down. Fuck it . I’m saying this for you grandpa. You are gone but not forgotten

It’s a way to make electricity 😂

Check out Boyd bushman. He was my grandpa. He would show my family this trick when I was a kid . Love you grandpa. The world is listening now ❤️❤️

Theoretically even better because both are better conductors than copper. However, it works well with aluminium also, but a little heavier gauge is better than Copper, and it is lot cheaper than all of the others as well as much lighter. Alu is still used in most induction motors' rotor for squirrel cage...
