An electric motor works by using magnets along with coils of wire to transfer electric energy into kinetic energy. The coil is positioned between two magnetic poles; when current passes through the coil, it experiences f... More »

Windmills produce electricity by electromagnetic induction, the process in which the movement of magnets in a magnetic field generates electricity. In a windmill, when wind moves the blades of the windmill that move the ... More »

Magnetic power generators have a small wheel in between magnets that are aligned in such a manner that they repel each other. The opposing forces of the magnets cause the wheel to have an unending rotating motion, poweri... More »
