in the previous question from http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/aug98/897772938.Eg.r.html i understand the concept here that the energy required to do these type of motors is more than it can produce, but i don't really understand magnetic shielding , and i know it wouldn't work, or someone would have done it already, but why doesn't it work to use magnetic shielding to shield the magnets field in places where it would push the wrong direction, and not use shielding where it would push it the right direction. I'm not sure if I expressed myself very clearly, but anyway.
Re: why doesn't magnetic shielding work in this situation?
