a axially oriented static electromagnet,
a rotating "virtual bar magnet", created by
the four coils that surrounds everything,
electrons — both mobile and immobile — that are deﬂected out towards the periphery. Thepath of the mobile electrons starts with an arrow, and the immobile ones with the the startingpoints (black dots) of their path.Here two important observations can be made:
Actually, an alternative method (called method #1) is also described.
Yet another Tesla invention.
but it’s only the "virtual bar magnet" that actually rotates
