    Amateur question about coupling linear motion to a generator.

    Hi, I'm completely lost how to tackle a problem. Any suggestions would help.

    I have a 1/2 kilo object going up and down about one inch, approx. once a second. I want to harvest this energy by coupling its motion to turn a small generator, or some sort of pump etc.

    Is there any cheap and simple way (or existing device) to drive a small generator or pump, from the linear motion of the 1/2 kilo object's motion?

    Search the internet for "Linear Electric Generator" for ideals.
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
