What the main different between shunt motor and induction motor and AC motors?
What is AC motor and DC motor?
How do you differentiat dc motior and ac motor physicaly?
if you power an ac motor with dc or a dc motor with ac you will likely start smelling smoke and the motor will be damaged. If the motor is marked "3-phase", "shaded pole", or "induction" it is an ac motor! BTW, there are ac/dc motors that will run on both, they are wound very much like dc motors but a bit differently.
