[To all users]

  • This Franklin motor is available to use several times in experiments once assembled.
  • The combination with “Static Genecon” is the best way to demonstrate Coulomb’s law in the behavior of Franklin motor.
  • The comparison between Franklin’s motor and a popular DC motor makes you easily understand the electrostatic force (Coulomb force).

[To teachers]

  • In the science lesson of the electrostatic force (Coulomb force), this Franklin motor is a good model for the demonstration.
  • The theory of Franklin motor rotated with electrostatic force (Coulomb force) can be described as the motion of the rotor in a step by step because of its simple structure.
  • The combination with “Static GENECON” for learners realizes the more efficient science lesson of the electrostatic force is to use as a hands-on science in the center of learners.

[To students]

  • Learners can directly experiment with electrostatic force using the Franklin motor and “Static GENECON” in hands-on science.
  • The Franklin motor can work even if its electrode flags break a little because it has sufficient durability.
