Hello! I need help on this one question. I know that the Earth's gravitational force pulls the train towards the ground, but I do not understand how the other forces act on it.

Explain how gravitational, electrical, and magnetic forces act on a maglev train.

Thank you for any help:)

1. Earth's gravitational field keeps the train and its parts and pieces together and on the ground. The electrical poles in the train and in the guide or tracks, north, and south, move the train, while the magnetic pools hover the train above the guide or tracks.

2. Earth pulls downward due to gravitational force.
Electric current in coils produce electromagnets which repel the superconducting magnetic material with equal force upwards.
