Hello my fellow Evokians
I had a dream around twenty years ago and when i woke up i knew that it was something that I want to make. If I could make this I will add jobs where there are none and help our ailing economy.
I want to make a car that is very lightweight and the shape is semi-spherical. The method of running the car is such that there is a ball in the place of the eccelerator . You would use your foot to spin the ball which causes an electromagnetic induction. "Electromagnetic induction is the production of voltage across a conductor situated in a changing magnetic field or a conductor moving through a stationary magnetic field. Michael Faraday is generally credited with the discovery of the induction phenomenon in 1831 (1) I imagine that I would have to build an electric motor that would have enough torque to supply the amount of energy needed to move the vehicle.
1. The circuit must be closed, otherwise electric charges carried by the current acc**ulate at its ends and those acc**ulations create their own electric field, stopping the flow of any additional current.
2. If a current does flow, it contributes its own magnetic field, modifying the one creating it and generally weakening it.
3. If some more complicated relation takes the place of Ohm's Law (as happens, for instance, in plasmas), that relation rules the current flow, often making it more complex.(2)
4. --And... if there is NO electric conductor in the region of changing magnetic field, NO electric current flows. However, there still exists an "induced" electric field E, a modification of the properties of space, though without any material on which it acts, it would be hard to detect it. (2)
So ive found a concept for Description of motion in one dimension from Hyperphysics
Description of Motion in One Dimension
Motion is described in terms of displacement (x), time (t), velocity (v), and acceleration (a). Velocity is the rate of change of displacement and the acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. The average velocity and average acceleration are defined by the relationships:(3)
So this makes me wonder if you can make the acceleration rate climb by using this (ball to connect to induction motor) if my idea will work.
In any case I know that in the US we need jobs to replace outsourced jobs that are never coming back. I would love to design a car that based on the induction method or other electrical sources that are small enough to drive to do errands and at the same time cut down on energy used to do so. I will add my drawing of the car soon. I do not understand the laws of physics to properly show the scale of the motor needed nor the size of the vehicle but I believe it can be done.
I hope that all those who know physics will bear with me!
