When a current carrying wire is in a magnetic field it experiences a force. The size of the force experienced can be increased by either increasing the strength of the magnetic field or increasing the current in the wire. If the wire is parallel to the magnetic field it does not experience a force.

The generator effect is the induction of a potential difference when a wire experiences a change in... more

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... more
