Homework Help: Question about Simple DC Motor Winding

  1. Mar 24, 2006 #1
    I have a question concerning the armature in a simple DC Motor, the kind portrayed in textbooks. We have received an assignment to build a DC Motor and while I have made my own design I am having a bit of confusion with the armature. I know I can just have a straight conductor but I was wondering if wrapping enamel coated wire around them would increase the strength of the magnetic field? If so how would I wind the coil i.e does it have to be connected to a power source? Is there a specific way to wind it?

    By the way I attached a picture from the net, the kind of motor I am building.

    Thank you
