Two wires coming together via electromagnetic attraction
« on: September 22, 2018, 04:22:18 PM »
Hello, I have a very limited amount of knowledge regarding basic electromagnets. I was thinking of bringing two tips of wires together using an electromagnetic attraction between them (I attached a picture of what I am talking about). I was wondering if this is possible? I would appreciate some feedback regarding this.

My hope is: Your question was already answered.
If not:

Is it possible as shown in your picture? Nope, no way.

Why?

You need flowing current to generate an electromagnetic field.
Therefor you need a closed electric circuit.

Other options?

Yes. You need two parallel wires in wich the current flows in the same direction.
Each wire builds it own electromagnetic field. (Look: "Right-Hand-Rule".)

The effect is visible here.

Question now answered?
If you think, my english is bad, then you should read my french. :(
