Adam Savage's 10 Commandments at Maker's Faire:
Maker discussions are not homework discussions -- different context, different rules.
I guess I misposted. Feel free to move/delete/etc.
I'm just curious what an EE with a basic electronics desk would have tried in the same situation.
I would have challenged the student to figure it out for himself. He had a preconception that it should produce a lot of volts, and yet was faced with data saying it didn't. A tremendous learning opportunity for anyone, to reconcile preconceptions with reality. And if his expectation for volts was based on the nameplate of the motor-as-generator he was using, you'd immediately have your answer.My question is what would you have tried?
Thanks again for your help and take care WBahn.Don't forget wearing a chip on your shoulder.
Thanks GopherT. (another board) actually brought up a very obvious point that I'd tried and forgotten about. But I can't mention it here and I'm done with forums for a bit.I think you will be best off taking this to another site like many have done here recently.
