The motor effect: Creating a force(movement) by passing a current through a conductor in a magnetic field The generator effect: Creating a current in a conductor by moving it through a magnetic field. The motor effect and generator effect are the opposite of each other. Using Fleming's Left Hand Rule, you can predict the direction of the movement(motor effect) or current(generator effect) based on the direction of the other two factors(direction of magnetic field and current or movement)
