Learn physics with Arduino fan cart

Physics sometimes seems to be boring, but it can be entertaining especially if microcontroller is involved. This is pretty simple project based on Arduino Pro mini. It controls a small brushless DC motor that turns a propeller – so cart moves when motor turns. Cart also has a magnetic reed switch which turns motor of when activated. Physics classes may find this useful and interesting when learning kinetic energy, force, friction and other stuff. Continue reading
