What led to the created of all modern motors and generators?

what is an example of electromagnetic induction?

flow of electrical charge or flowing electrical energy

moves a conductor in a magnetic field to create an electrical charge via electromagnetic induction

What is the input and output of an electric generator?

What is the input and output of an electric motor?

example is an emergency generator

example is a blender

what are the potential sources of energy for a generator?

energy due to motion or position

a device used to convert mechanical energy into electricity

device that turns due to pressure from an outside source

example: wind turbines and water wheels

Input= mechanical energy output= electric energy

Michael Faraday in 1831

steam, ocean waves, water, pressure

glass, paper, and plastic

electric motor

electric generator

Nucleus

an insulator

good conductors

a conductor

mechanical energy

Atoms

electromagnetic induction

electrons

moving a magnet in a tube wrapped in copper wires creates an electrical current

Electricity is caused by a changing magnetic field.

generator

When electrons move in one direction we get electric current or electricity

current

Nucleus

1. add all energy sources up...94.02 2. add up renewable sources...8.832 3. Do renewable divided by all 8.832/94.02 = .093 Move the decimal to the right twice = 9.3%
