An electric motor converts electrical energy to mechanical energy, then mechanical energy to kinetic energy for motion.
4Me5 Magnetic Motor – Electric Motor Model
The concept of electric motor
The basic mechanism of an electric motor and an electric generator is almost the same except its concept. An electric generator is an electrical machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy while an electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
In an electric motor, the spinning electromagnet (rotor) inside a stationary magnet (stator) converts electrical energy to kinetic energy in magnetic field.
