  1. Can you please tell me what is the power supply you are using to generate 250 Amps please ? I am looking to replicate this. Thank you very much

  2. That’s about 250 amps through two, parallel-connected, 12 gauge stranded conductors. At 25 amps, the magnetic forces would not give rise to much movement in this experiment.

  3. AC or DC makes no difference in this case. No matter which part of the AC cycle you’re in, the current is always going to be flowing in opposite directions, and as such the magnetic fields are always opposites, they attract.
