- What did you do today?
Today we learnt about one more type of motor. It is a generating motor which can generate a current by cranking its shaft. We explored with a small hand cranking device which lights the bulb up when the handle was turned at a fast speed. We then proceeded to learn about Fleming's right hand law. Later that day, we did some final touch ups on our slides we will be using to present and added in models using the shapes in Google slides.
- What did you learn today?
We learnt about Fleming's right hand law which is almost the same as Fleming's left hand law but is used to determine the direction of current flow for generating motors. We also learnt that a current is produced when a wire is pushed in between the North and South pole of a magnet which causes the positive ions in the wire to move upwards as a current.
- How do you feel about today’s activities?
I learnt that not only is this extra knowledge, it can be applied to our upper secondary and also allows us to understand how the motors we use everyday works. I learnt to be more courageous in presenting and also to be more curious.
