Project help (electrical motor)

  1. Feb 23, 2004 #1
    This is probably a really newbie question but anyway I'll ask it, me and my buddies are doing an electrical motor for our high school physics class and we are running into problem one after another. We are only allowed the following materials
    A block of wood for the base
    6 nails
    5 popsicle sticks
    6 thumb tacks
    Adhesive tape (of any kind)
    unlimited amount of paper
    copper wire
    and a piece of foil

    We have the stator almost figured out but we are having problem with the rotor and we're out of ideas, I'd elaborate more on the ideas but I know the terms in french and I'm not sure of the right translation. Any ideas are welcome

    Thx in advance
