heres what he thinks that if someone were to have a wooden box insulated on the outside with rubber . inside this box he will glue a very strong magnet to the bottom of this box . and on the top he will glue /weld a peg he will have a magnet travel up and down on this peg . he believes the repulsing force will force the magnet on top to push up against the box . he believes that a varying magnetic field namely a neodmyium magnet being the base magnet will cause the effect of levitation

he explained this by saying the upward repulsing force of a neodmyium magnet (say 100 pounds) is stronger than the other magnets 1 or 2 pounds of force as well as the force of gravity .

he assumes that magnetic fields repulsing is the effect of charged particles trying to push the

opposite magnetic field out of its field . he also assumes that a more powerful magnetic field will push more on the opposite magnet more than that magnet will push on it

he explained it like this

magnet a =100 magnet b = 10 now what happens to 90 pounds of force got to go somewhere and that's what causes one magnet to be repelled much much more . he intends to use this principle to get the box to levitate

he also stated this as his equation

UPMAG > DOWNMAG + Gravity

where upmag is the upward repelling force of the magnet

where downmag is the downward repelling force of the magnet

gravity is well gravity

could someone give me a full proof answer to this whole problem . i really do believe this friend of mines lost it . I am pretty sure some form of a Newton laws prohibits this . if it didnt someone would have done this along time . i couldn't get the picture to upload so i hope doing this works in explaining

id appreciate any answer to this
