Fleming's Left and Right Hand Rules

  1. Jun 8, 2015 #1

    I was wondering if anyone has any advice on when to use FLHR and FRHR in the Edexcel A - Level Physics, as I'm mixing them up in questions.

    The Right Hand Rule is for a generator, and the Left Hand Rule is for a motor. A generator is where movement causes a current, and a motor is where a current causes movement.

    Abby, by the way, I just remembered to mention that the direction of the current for these rules is from positive to negative, the "conventional" flow.
