Description:

This item is an introductory tutorial on generators and motors. It explains how current flows through a conductor and how motors change electric energy into mechanical energy. The latter half of the tutorial illustrates both AC and DC current generators and motors, with graphs to show the current wave cycles of both. This resource is part of the Molecular Expressions project at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University.
