Hello, I recently was thinking about an idea for a perpetual battery. I have an extremely limited amount of Physics knowledge (just a Conceptual Physics [Algebraic Physics] class) as I am still in high school. Does anyone know if this would work: 1. Have a tube 2. Wrap the tube in copper wire (so the tube has a copper coil over it) 3. Have a magnet on one side of the tube (-) and have another on the other end (+) 4. Have yet another magnet (in a cylindrical like shape) inside the tube 5. The magnet would go back and forth inside the tube My questions are: Would the magnet actually go back and forth or would it be in equilibrium? If the magnet was in equilibrium would there be a way to alternate the end magnets so that the magnet would actually go back and forth? If the magnet were to move, would a measurable amount of electricity be produced even with an extremely long tube and extremely powerful magnets? Thanks!
