Magnet motor

  1. Aug 8, 2009 #1
    Can you please tell me whether you think this magnet motor will work or not?
    If not then what is the reason why not.

    Most magnet motors seem to have a bad press, so I don't hold much hope for this one:

    Perpetual motion machines don't work - it's not usually worth discussing it because the people who beleive in them REALLY beleive.
    But if you are interested see

    Magnet ones, in particular, are difficult to explain without a lot of maths - but if it looks too good to be true, it is!
