How an electric motor (DC motor) works

DC motors can be found in many portable household appliances, automobiles, and different types of industrial equipment. In this video, we will understand how DC motors sold on the market work and are manufactured. Let's start with the simplest possible DC motor. It looks like this. The stator provides a constant magnetic field, and the armature, which is the rotating part, is a simple coil. The armature is connected to a direct current source by a pair of collector rings. When current flows through the coil, an electromagnetic force is induced on them, according to Lorentz's law. The reel will therefore begin to spin.

In this tutorial I explain the main physical phenomena that underlie the operation of an electric motor.

I am also making in front of you a real small electric motor capable of lifting a load like a winch.

Our future will be populated by electric motors (scooters, bicycles, scooters, motorcycles, cars, trucks, trains, planes, etc.), so it is important to understand the basics.
