Electric motors take electric energy and turn it into kinetic energy Generators take mechanical energy and turn it into electric energy

Electric motors and electric generators can have permanent magnets or electromagnets. It depends on the design. For example electric generators can be dynamos, alternators, or rotary converters. However, in general electric motors are electromagnetic so that resistance disappears when current is cut and electric generators have permanent magnets.

Electric motors and generators are electromagnetic devices that are the opposite of each other. Electric motors convert electrical energy into mechanical energy, while electric generators convert mechanical energy into electrical energy.

the electric motors are round and the generators are square and they are powered by the sunshine the generators blow bubbles and the electric motors blow somkey green gas!! this gas is deadly If you are able, perhaps you can answer this in a serious manner. If you don't know the answer, than please STFU!!

Generators change mechanical power to electrical power. Motors change electrical power to mechanical power. Permanent magnet dc motors and generators can usually work either way.

Radio, electric bell, speakers, motors, generators, microphones etc.

A stator can be found in electric motors, generators and alternators.

yes. An example would be: electric coils... which are in motors and generators.

Generators are motors run in reverse and vice versa.

They are neither. Coal is a fuel which can be used to run motors and generators.

The similarity between electric motor and electric generator is that 1)they work on the magnetic effects of electric current. 2) They both have the armatures to rotate the loop.

This classification comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing power generators, motor generator sets, and electric motors, excluding engine-starting motors.

induction motors, synchronous motors, commutator motors

not much, generator is usually a name tacked on when a electric motor is primarily being used to produce electrical power for other devices

An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through the interaction of magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors to generate force. The reverse process, producing electrical energy from mechanical energy, is done by generators such as an alternator or a dynamo; some electric motors can also be used as generators, for example, a traction motor on a vehicle may perfom both tasks. . Electric motors and generators are commonly referred to as electric machines. +++ Right answer... to a different question! The term "motor vehicle" has been applied to any vehicle of any type powered by any form of engine including but not only electric motors, since their earliest years in the early 20C.
