DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAGNETICALLY
LEVITATE AN OBJECT
• Mechanically constraint
• Diamagnetic levitation
Two magnets are mechanically constrained along a
single vertical axis, this will act to levitate one of the
magnets above the other.
Also known as Pseudo levitation
Diamagnetic materials repel a magnetic field.
Less than ZERO magnetic permeability.
By surrounding a diamagnetic material with a magnetic field,
it can be held in a stationary position.
Superconductivity is a phenomenon of exactly zero electrical
resistance and expulsion of magnetic fields.
Superconductors works on the principle of MEISSNER EFFFECT
Maglev, or magnetic levitation, is a system of
transportation that suspends, guides and propels vehicles,
predominantly trains, using magnet.
• Magnetic bearings
pumps, generators, motors use levitation to support
moving machinery without physical contact.
