Generator is the device that generates electricity. Motor is a rotating device using electricity

An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. While an electrical generator does the opposite.

The sizing of the generator is dependant on the size of the electric motor driving the mixer.

the difference between a electric motor and a generator.Motor- is a device or equipment which convert electrical energy to mechanical energy.Generator- is a device or equipment which convert mechanical energy to electrical energy.

a motor is a generator and a generator is a motor, if you are applying a voltage to turn the rotor its a motor and if you are turning the rotor and taking the voltage off the terminals its a generator or alternator.

If the output power of the generator matches the required input power of the motor - sure.

I think it can work with a certain type of generator and an electric motor like one that uses 300w/h The idea is to run a generator that can produce more electricity than needed to run the motor that is powering it.

An electric motor converts electric energy to mechanical energy while a generator converts mechanical energy to electric energy.

The British scientist William Sturgeon in 1832 invented the electric motor. The generator is just a motor running backwards. Michael Faraday, another British scientist, was also working on electric motors at the same time.

An electric generator converts mechanical energy to electric energy while a motor converts electric energy to mechanical. A generator can actually act as a motor if it losses whatever is making it spin (called "motoring"), which is usually a very bad thing. Motors may be used as generators as well, depending on their design.

A diesel engine spins a generator, the generator powers the electric motor that turns the wheels.

An electric generator and an electric motor does the opposite!

when the motor runs more than rated speed it produces leading current and results act as a generator. (or) the motor act as generator when it produces more back e.m.f

Generator converts mechanical energy in to electrical energy, where as electric motor converts electrical energy in to mechanical energy.

electric motor, generator and automobiles.

Motor is device which converts electrical energy to mechanical energy,where as generator converts mechanical energy to electrical energy

an electric motor converts the electrical energy into mechanical energy by rotation based on the principle of electromagnetic induction.and electric generator converts the mechanical energy into electrical energy based on the same principle but works reversed.

Yes, the generator needs an engine to turn the shaft at the right speed but it does not matter what type of engine it is. But power is lost in the conversion process so to use an electric motor with an electric generator is a circular and possibly questionable activity.

An electrical motor generator in reverse means that it can turn the electrical energy to mechanical and kinetic energy.

Electric motor is an example of conversion of energy. Electric generator is another example.
