Question 1A technique commonly used in special-effects lighting is to sequence the on/off blinking of a string of light bulbs, to produce the effect of motion without any moving objects:
1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 31 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 31 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 31 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3phase sequence = 1-2-3
all "1" bulbs lit all "2" bulbs lit all "3" bulbs lit all "1" bulbs lit 
Timebulbs appear to be "moving" from left to right
What would the effect be if this string of lights were arranged in a
instead of a line? Also, explainwhat would have to change electrically to alter the ”speed” of the blinking lights’ ”motion”.file 007342
Question 2If a set of six electromagnet coils were spaced around the periphery of a circle and energized by 3-phaseAC power, what would a magnetic compass do that was placed in the center?

Hint: imagine the electromagnets were light bulbs instead, and the frequency of the AC power was slowenough to see each light bulb cycle in brightness, from fully dark to fully bright and back again. What wouldthe pattern of lights appear to do?file 007373
