Simply so, what was the electric motor used for?
An electric motor is a device used to convert electricity into mechanical energy—opposite to an electric generator. They operate using principles of electromagnetism, which shows that a force is applied when an electric current is present in a magnetic field.
Also to know, how does a simple electric motor work?
The basic idea of an electric motor is really simple: you put electricity into it at one end and an axle (metal rod) rotates at the other end giving you the power to drive a machine of some kind. When an electric current starts to creep along a wire, it creates a magnetic field all around it.
Can an electric motor generate electricity?
You can turn an electric motor into a generator to generate power, as this video proofs. The battery powers the first motor, it is connected mechanically to the second engine. When the first motor starts spinning, the second motor produces enough electricity to power the LED and another motor.
What are the 6 parts of an electric motor?
A simple motor has six parts:
- Armature or rotor.
- Field magnet.
- DC power supply of some sort.
