Main Question or Discussion Point
. I tried making a newman motor according to a video on youtube. I have copper wires coiled around a plastic pipe, 200 above and 200 coils below the middle of the plastic pipe. The shaft in between is made of iron and it is quite thick. Now when I connect a 9v battery to the two ends of the copper wires, one above and one below, with some magnets in the pipe, around the shaft, nothing happened. I need help. Where did I go wrong?
