How much energy does a ceiling fan use when operating?
This makes no sense.

In a ceiling fan there is an single phase induction motor. Single phase stator produces a non rotating, pulsating magnetic field.The single coil excited by a single phase cu…rrent produces two counter rotating magnetic field phases, coinciding twice per revolution at 0 degrees and 180 degrees. When the phases rotate to 90 degree and -90 degree they cancel. At 45 deg and -45 deg they are partially additive along the +x axis and cancel along the y axis. The sum of these two phases is a phasor stationary in space, but alternating polarity in time. Thus, no starting torque is developed. So, in order to generate the starting torque we have to split the phase in two. This configuration comprises two windings main winding W1 and auxiliary winding W2, a centrifugal switch SW1 and a capacitor. The two windings are wound with a geometric offset, effectively making a second set of poles phase shifted within the stator. The capacitor provides a phase shift to the current flowing in W1 and we therefore have a "two phase" motor while the switch is closed. When the motor is almost up to speed, the switch opens disconnecting W1 and the capacitor. The motor can be reversed by reversing the connections of either W1 or W2 (but not both) The start winding (W1) and the start capacitor provide for a rotating magnetic field in one direction enabling the motor to start.
A ceiling fan is a common house appliance which is attached to the ceiling and uses an electric motor to rotate blades or paddles in a circular motion. Ceiling fans help cool …a room by moving air which causes evaporative cooling. Fans range in size from 36 inches to 56 inches using 55 to 100 watts, a typical 48 inch ceiling fan will use 75 watts.
Not very much... A large ceiling fan (approx 56" in diameter) uses about 85 watts.
Can you have a ceiling fan that generates electricity and same electricity can be used for its operation?
What you are describing is what physicists call a perpetual motion machine, which can never be made. In nature, you don't get something for nothing, that's not the way the uni…verse works.
around 200w eg about 2.5p , 4c a hour
capacitors are used in the fans and motors to provide the initial turn or ROTATION OF THE ROTOR after the rotation started the capacitor acts as a current path.. It is used t…o start the fan motor rotating. It is the same with all capacitor start motors no matter what size they are. Its used to improve the powerfactor
it either elastic energy heat energy kinetic energy or sound please help
Single phase induction motors are used in ceiling fans
Of course, you can save even more energy (and money) if you do somecareful planning and tinkering when it comes to using your ceilingfans. Here are some tactics you can try to… decrease your energyusage and increase your savings.
The angle of pitch of the fan blade in relationship to the air it is moving through forces the air to move along the blade angle surface depending on the rotational direction …of the blade. To reverse the rotation of the blades there should be a reversing switch on the fan body. Remember in the winter time your ceiling fan should push the room air in an upwards motion and in the summertime the ceiling fan should push the room air in a downwards motion.
Capacitor helps a motor generate a starting torque. once the torque is produced and motor rotates capacitor acts as a current path. technically capacitor creates a phase diffe…rence.
Very little. Most electric fan motors of household size use just a trickle of current.

No, You can't until you buy a new one
Home Depot offers a wide range of ceiling fans starting at around $50. There high quality fans reach the price of $650. It all depends on the type of fan that you want.

Can you use 14-2 wire to operate a ceiling fan using two switches one for the fan the other for the lights?
On these types of installations an electrician would use a threewire cable set from the switch box to the fixture's junction box.At the fixture's junction box both the fan neu…tral and the lightneutral would be wire nutted together with the incoming neutralfrom the switch boxes. From the three wire, the white wire would goto the fan and light's neutral wires. The Black would come from thebottom of one of the switches and go to the fan's motor lead. Thered wire would come from the bottom of the other switch and go tothe light fixture's lead. It can be done with two runs of two wire to the fixture. You willneed a two gang switch box for this project to hold the twoseparate switches. You could use a single gang light switch box ifyou can still find where duplex switches being sold. A duplexswitch is one that has the configuration of a duplex receptaclewith the switches being one on top of the other. The cover plate isthe same one used for duplex receptacles. To answer this questionfully more information is needed. See discuss in the left margin.

It is most likely used in conjunction with a starting winding in asingle-phase motor to make it start the correct way.
