In this project, we set out to design a pump using electromagnetic forces instead of mechanical ones. After testing several different models, we arrived at one that worked for pumping oil and other non-polar liquids. This report goes over the experimental procedure of how even with little resources and funding, scientists are able to overcome obstacles and contribute to knowledge in some meaningful way. The pressure head developed by our pump peaked at 0.162 kPa.
