Insight - How DC Motor Works
Table of Contents:
DC Motors convert electrical energy (voltage or power source) to mechanical energy (produce rotational motion). They run on direct current. The Dc motor works on the principle of Lorentz force which states that when a wire carrying current is placed in a region having magnetic field, than the wire experiences a force. This Lorentz force provides a torque to the coil to rotate.
A commonly used DC Motor is shown in the image above.
