Homework Help: Making a electric motor - help!

  1. May 9, 2010 #1
    Hi all. I'm just wondering if anyone can give me some simple plan to make an electric motor?

    The materials i have atm are:

    2 x Perm magnets
    2 x batteries
    2 x aligator clips
    2 x stands for the coil/armature to sit in
    1 x various tools.

    I need to be able to attach a string to the motor to record revolutions ect.

    Thanks so much!

    Is this a project for a school class? What have you been given in the way of instructions?
