Stress Relieving Magnetic Sphere

Item # 205820

Feeling stressed at your desk? Try the Stress Relieving Magnetic Sphere. Simply drop the metal sphere into the magnetic tube. The movement of the falling ball creates an "anti gravity" magnetic field that slows down or stops the ball. The faster the ball moves, the stronger the opposing force becomes. You don’t have to understand Lenz’s law or Faraday’s law of induction — you just have to try it! Note: Contains strong magnets. Keep away from watches and electronics.

Stress Relieving Magnetic Sphere

The Stress Relieving Magnetic Sphere gets even more exciting if you know what happens under the hood. It has nothing to do with the well known attracting or repelling magnetic force — the underlying principles are based on an effect called Lenz's law.

• The most unique executive stress relieving toy of the year

• When you drop the ball in the tube, the movement of the falling ball creates a changing magnetic field inside the metal wall of the tube

• According to Faraday’s law of induction, the changing magnetic field induces a voltage inside the wall of the tube called electromotive force

• Because the tube is made of well conducting metals, this voltage creates electric currents that flow round-and-round. These are called eddy-currents

• According to the law of excitation, the flowing eddy-currents generate a second magnetic field that can affect the magnetic field of the ball

• Lenz’s law states that this additional magnetic field is always directed to oppose the motion that has generated it: the movement of the ball

• The faster the motion, the stronger the slowing force gets

• When the ball stands still you feel no attraction at all. This dynamic behavior makes the Stress Relieving Magnetic Sphere so satisfying

• Makes a great gift

Note: Contains strong magnets. Keep away from watches and electronics
