DOING Physics--Physics Activities for Groups.
Zwicker, Earl, Ed.
Physics Teacher, v23 n3 p172-74 Mar 1985
Students are challenged to investigate a simple electric motor and to build their own model from a battery, wood block, clips, enameled copper wire, bare wire, and sandpaper. Through trial and error, several discoveries are made, including a substitute commutator and use of a radio to detect motor armature contact changes. (DH)
