Explain the working principle of an electric generator.

Ans: Electric generator works on the principle of electromagnetic induction. An electric generator is a device which convert mechanical energy to electric energy.

  1. The concept of electromagnetic induction explains that altering the magnetic field near a conductor can produce an electric current within the circuit.
  2. When a coil rotates within a magnetic field, it leads to the induction of an electric current in the coil. The direction of this induced current can be determined using Fleming’s right-hand rule.
