Wire Attraction/repulsion (small Version)


Demonstrates how wires with DC current flowing through them attract and repel each other depending on direction of current flow.


To demonstrate how wires with current flowing in the same direction attract, while wires with current flowing in opposite directions repel. This setup is much smaller and less impressive than the other one.
