Q:
I want to run a generator with a motor. I want to add the solenoid of the generator with a electric motor. this motor will run the generator and produce electricity. It is known to us that the power of a generator depends on the quantity copper coil of the solenoid of that generator. so if we increase the copper coil continuously the power supply will also increase.like this way once the produced power will be more than running the motor. Then we will be able to run things without any cost. Is it really possible???
