I want to put magnets in a circle with the same polarities pointing inward [...]
while there's another magnet spinning around in a circle rotating a motor creating electricity.
I want it to bring power to the battery and I can take it from there...
but I'm not sure how to measure the output or what type/size of resistors and other misc. parts I'll need... any suggestions?
I attatched a photo of my rough idea on how to get the magnet to spin... [...] the rotating magnet will pull towards the next magnet and push away from the last creating a constant spin.
...There's no harm, I think, in pursuing these things. As Soeren says, just don't invest a lot of money or time that you cannot afford.
Sorry, I get worked up over this crap and get really annoyed when people who have never studied science or physics think they have discovered the next great thing...
I can understand your annoyance. Still, I think it better that people pursue ideas like this, wrong though they may turn out to be, than play video games or have arguments on the Internet. At least this way they can learn something.
But what if your goal is to make something new? Then I think you have to tinker and experiment. Fool around. Try new things. Even things that you think will not work.
Planning in that case is more a drawback than an asset. Why? Because if you look at the history of science, from engineering to medicine to geology, people first discover new ideas and only then figure out the science behind them.
How can you plan a path to somewhere if you do not know where you are going?
Not trying to create the next best thing... just trying to make it easier to drive to work without worry of running out of gas.
What if I used electromagnets? switching the currents back and forth would allow change in a magnet possibly beside or beneath it.
