The Wonders of Levitation
French, M. M. J.
Physics Education, v45 n1 p37-41 Jan 2010
I discuss some interesting classroom demonstrations of diamagnetism and how this effect can produce levitation. The possibilities for hands-on demonstrations of diamagnetic and superconducting levitation are discussed. To conclude I discuss some practical uses for levitation in daily life.
