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?

Thank you

Newman as in Joseph Newman? If that's the case, where you went wrong is falling for a perpetual motion hoax.

Yes, I would trust the wikipaedia entry on this one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Energy_Machine_of_Joseph_Newman" [Broken]

The test results were published in June 1986 and concluded that it was not a perpetual motion machine, and the patent was again denied. Newman later withdrew the patent. Newman's ideas about electricity and magnetism have been described as pseudoscientific and his claims false.

Voodoo science. I like the sound of that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voodoo_science" [Broken]
Park uses the term voodoo science as a catch-all concept covering four categories sometimes difficult to distinguish from each other:

* pathological science, wherein genuine scientists deceive themselves
* junk science, speculative theorizing which bamboozles rather than enlightens
* pseudoscience proper, work falsely claiming to have a scientific basis, which may be dependent on supernatural explanations
* fraudulent science, exploiting bad science for the purposes of fraud
The Crank entry is a fun read also:

wiki on crank said:
No argument or evidence can ever be sufficient to make a crank abandon his belief.

If that is the case, is there any method of building an electric motor for a toy car, powered by 9V? Thanks.
