Magnetic Fuel

Satisfactory Essays
The future is thought to be a world full of the impossible. Flying cars and skateboards overwhelm the skies while immortal robots and machines dominate below. However, some scientists and skeptics deem this impossible while others have no clue where to start. People have tried the skies and seas for fuel and energy, but they never payed attention to an object they have been playing with since their childhood: Magnets. Magnets have mysterious properties that can be harnessed into a highly efficient source of energy; it can refurbish the efficiency of mechanical objects and revolutionize transportation. With the help from magnets, the fantasy of tomorrow can become the reality of today. The fantasy begins with perpetual motion. Perpetual motion is the ability to be in motion endlessly without any energy to start it (Grimes 1). In a similar manner, magnets can be aligned and oriented in a way so that their magnetic fields produce this perceptual effect. In a vacuum system, two magnets can be spinning endlessly against each other without any start since their magnetic fields attract and repel each other to create motion. However, the last part seems erroneous; how can something start moving without a “push” or “pull”? It violates the laws of thermodynamics which state that energy can be converted, not created or destroyed! Of course, true perpetual motion cannot be achieved, but reaching 80%-90% is not impossible. The magnets can be started with some jolt of energy and as a reward, it can provide efficient non-resistant kinetic motion lasting up to 30 years! The kinetic energy can then be converted into electrical energy to fuel cars, planes, factories, etc (Welch 1). Using kinetic energy and magnetic fields that control the motion of... ... middle of paper ... ...easier to accomplish. Hence, it can create the machines of the future. In conclusion, magnets and magnetic fields are the next efficient source of green energy. A single pair of magnets have the potential to create perpetual motion thus producing unfathomable amounts of energy for up to 30 years! Not only can it create such powerful energy, but some magnets also have the ability to levitate off the ground and move efficients in any direction. The two concepts alongside the amplification of the Earth’s magnetic fields through iron core solenoids can change the way mechanical machines behave and work; machines work faster and better making more cars in a factory or vehicles will ride more efficiently saving hundreds of thousands of time and fuel per year. The fantasy future was once thought to be only dreams, but with just a pair of magnets, it can become a reality!
