Introduction: simple maglev train or the south pole this is important because maglev trains work on the basic principle of repelling magnets.
Maglev is a transport method that uses magnetic levitation to move vehicles without touching the ground a maglev train floats above the tracks on a cushion of magnetic field magnets on the track push and lift the train up in the air by about 1 inch to 6 inches. Magnetic levitation trains (maglev for short), operate through the use of a magnetic field that guides, propels and suspends the train above a guideway in which the train travels along the maglev trains were conceptualized in the early 1900s by two americans, robert goddard and emile bachelet, however the maglev train engine (linear motor.
Bullet trains, also called maglev trains, operate with magnetic levitation technology developed by japanese and german engineers japanese engineers refer to their method as electrodynamic suspension. Maglev is a method of propulsion that uses magnetic levitation to propel vehicles with magnets rather than with wheels that the conventional trains use magnetic levitation is the use of magnetic fields to levitate a (usually) metallic object.
