Homework Help: Magnetic Car

  1. Jan 14, 2007 #1
    I'm a first year undergraduate student in UK and i gotta make a poster which will be about a future car.
    I thought about magnetic cars but i need some advise on how the whole thing will work.
    I mean i thought about making the cars out of iron and use permanent magnets as roads but that's not a really good idea.
    How about electromagnets? How can I put all that theory about induced emf into practice for this assignment
    can you please explain in detail how it can work?

    strachi -- you are referring to magnetic levitation, or maglev. Here's a good starting resource for your research. Have fun!
