CHAPTER 1 OBJECTIVE   WHAT  WE  ARE  

INTENDING TO  DO  IS  A   MAGNETIC  BROOM  THAT   PICK  UP  ALL  THE   MAGNETIC  TRASH  SUCH   AS  CANS.  


Welcome To Our Physics Science Fair.

∏ BACKGROUND We are  going  to  build  a  magnetic  broom.  We  think  this   experiment  will  be  useful  environmentally  because  this   broom  will  pick  the  metallic  trash  on  the  streets  and   everywhere  we  go.  We  will  basically  need  big  magnets  to  build   the  broom  they  will  be  attached  to  a  wood  table.  We  are   buying  two  batteries  of  6  volts  to  get  more  electricity  and  we   want  to  make  it  a  little  bit  professional,  so  we  are  going  to  use   a  switch  at  the  very  top  part  of  the  broom  and  in  that  way  we   will  be  able  to  activate  the  magnets  with  the  switch  and  when   we  raise  the  broom  the  magnets  won’t  fall  off  unless  we   deactivate  it.  We  will  put  four  wheels  so  that  the  broom  can   function  well,  also,  we  are  going  to  cover  the  magnets  with   copper  wire  of  the  caliber  of  22  so  that  the  broom  will   function  as  we  want  it  to  function.

HYPOTHESIS If  we  build  a  broom  with  magnets  in  the  bottom  used  to  pick   up  all  the  trash  in  the  streets  and  everywhere  you  go,  then  it   will  help  us  to  keep  our  environment  clean  of  metal  because   the  magnets  will  be  connected  to  two  batteries  and  they  will   produce  electricity  to  pick   up  all  the  metal.   MATERIALS   -­‐2  batteries  of  6  volts  each -­‐Coils  of  wire   -­‐Switch   -­‐Wood  table -­‐2  wheels -­‐Cables -­‐Metallic  tube -­‐Axle -­‐  Magnets

Procedure ∏ 1. We  are  going  to  make  a  sketch  of  our  broom.   2.  We  are  going  to  research  about  the  materials  we  are   going  to  be  using.   3. We  will  list  the  materials  and  buy  them.   4. We  will  make  the  first  try  of  the  broom.   5. We  are  going  to  put  the  tube  with  the  wood  table 6. We  will  paste  the  magnets  and  cover  them  with  coil   7. We  are  going  to  paste  the  wheels   8. We  will  conect  the  batteries  to  the  switch   9. We  will  expose  the  broom  to  Mr.C  to  check  if  it  has  any   errors   10.We  will  correct  the  errors  in  a  sketch.   11. We  will  build  the  broom  with  no  errors.

Analysis Our project  didn’t  go  as  we  planned   because  we  didn’t  found  all  the   materials  we  needed  to  do   this  project,  we  were   looking  for  them  we   didn’t  had  enough  time   because  the  date  of  the   science  fair  was   approaching.   6

Results ∏ The results  of  our  experiment  didn’t  go  as  we   planed,  we  couldn’t  find  some  materials  we   needed  so  instead  of  using  a  switch  and   batteries  we  pasted  the  magnets  to  the  box  and   we  made  our  experiment  with  permanent   magnets.

This book is about a project we made of a magnetic broom in our physics lab! We used the wonderful Ibooks Author! Highly recommended!!
