With the use of liquid nitrogen, which has a temperature of -196 °,the YBCO compound is cooled to become a superconductor, and a superconductor placed in a magnetic field has amazing behaviors. Ferrofluid alone cannot levitate on a superconductor, but if we cover a magnet it seems to levitate because it completely covers the magnet.
Thanks to supermagnete.com for providing me with these magnets for free. Here the products used in this video.
For the magnetic track i used this cube https://sumag.net/w-10-n-x01

On my channel you will find all the ways to have fun with magnets divided into 3 main categories:
Classical magnetic experiments such as magnetic levitation, homopolar motors, small magnetic weapons, Gauss cannons, gears, magnetic field viewers and much more.
Satisfaction video like the construction of magnetic sculptures, slime and magnetic putty and product review.
ASMR relaxing videos to watch but above all to listen preferably with stereo headphones to be able to appreciate the particular sounds of the magnets
About Magnetic Games:
All ways to have fun with magnets.
The magnetism has always intrigued me. The strength of the magnets is scientifically explainable but there’s something “magical” about its interaction with the world. My Channel offers you curious experiments and fun games to do with magnets.
