Motors and Generators

Motors and Generators lets you build up a 3D model of a motor or generator

You’ll use it to:

  • Explore how a wire with a current moves in a magnetic field
  • Demonstrate why motors use loops of wire
  • Show why motors need a commutator
  • Explain differences between commutators
  • Demonstrate the output of a generator in an oscilloscope
  • Explain all this with animations of the field lines.
