How a Wimshurst Machine Works – Including Leyden Jars and How a Spark Gap Occurs
Another fantastic video from Rimstar explaining how Wimshurst Machines operate:
How a Wimshurst machine works, a complete explanation of how this very popular electrostatic generator works. Includes electrostatic, inductive charging, the neutralizer bars, collectors, Leyden jars and the spark gap.
Also here’s a bonus video of the Wimshurst Machine mounted to a bicycle :
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
