What is an electric motor?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 21st Mar, 2014, 09:30: AM
An electric motor is a device that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy. A motor works on the principle that a conductor carrying current in a magnetic field experiences a mechanical force .
Electric motor is used as an important component in electric fans, cranes, electric trains, textile machines, mixers, washing machines, computers, mixers, etc.
