What are the basic elements of a simple electric motor?
A simple motor has the following parts:
- A power supply – mostly DC for a simple motor.
- Field Magnet – could be a permanent magnet or an electromagnet.
- An Armature or rotor.
What are the four parts of a motor circuit?
Every electric circuit, regardless of where it is or how large or small it is, has four basic parts: an energy source (AC or DC), a conductor (wire), an electrical load (device), and at least one controller (switch).
What two forces are essential for electric motors to work?
Answer: These two forces – electricity and magnetism – work together to spin the motor.
Which of the following electrical appliances contains an electric motor?

What is are the significance or impact of electric motor in our lives?
Electric motors impact almost every aspect of modern living. Refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, fans, computer hard drives, automatic car windows, and multitudes of other appliances and devices all use electric motors to convert electrical energy into useful mechanical energy.
What would an electric motor be used for?
An electric rotor. An electric motor is a device used to convert electricity into mechanical energy—opposite to an electric generator. They operate using principles of electromagnetism, which shows that a force is applied when an electric current is present in a magnetic field.
