AC stands for alternating current, and DC is direct current. A motor is a device that uses electrical energy to spin. An AC motor uses AC voltage, and a DC motor uses DC voltage.

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.
