  3. 3. IntroductionIntroduction  Bullet trainBullet train is a system of transportation that uses magnetic is a system of transportation that uses magneticlevitation to suspend, guide and propel vehicles from magnetslevitation to suspend, guide and propel vehicles from magnetsrather than using mechanical methods, such as friction-reliantrather than using mechanical methods, such as friction-reliantwheels, axles and bearings. Bullet train is a means of flying awheels, axles and bearings. Bullet train is a means of flying avehicle or object along a guideway by using magnets to createvehicle or object along a guideway by using magnets to createboth lift and thrust, albeit only a few inches above the guidewayboth lift and thrust, albeit only a few inches above the guidewaysurfacesurface

Once the train isand 3.93 inches above the guideway. Once the train islevitated, power is supplied to the coils within thelevitated, power is supplied to the coils within theguideway walls to create a unique system of magneticguideway walls to create a unique system of magneticfields that pull and push the train along the guideway.fields that pull and push the train along the guideway.The electric current supplied to the coils in the guidewayThe electric current supplied to the coils in the guidewaywalls is constantly alternating to change the polarity ofwalls is constantly alternating to change the polarity ofthe magnetized coils. This change in polarity causes thethe magnetized coils. This change in polarity causes themagnetic field in front of the train to pull the vehiclemagnetic field in front of the train to pull the vehicleforward, while the magnetic field behind the train addsforward, while the magnetic field behind the train addsmore forward thrustmore forward thrust
