P3_8 Levitation

Nathan Pilkington, Michael Perry, John Bettles, Iain Clarke



This paper aimed to explore the validity of levitating a small car through a process of magnetic levitation. The case assumed a car with a large electromagnet suspended over a super conductor. The calculations showed that for a small car, a large flat electromagnet would need to operate with a magnetic field of 0.19T.
