How does a motor work?

How does a motor work?

      A motor is a object that turns electric energy to mechanical energy. This type of motor we made is made of three parts, a neodymium magnet, a copper wire, and a battery. When you connect the wire to the magnet, the magnet to the battery and the battery to the wire. Like energy is flowing to the wire it gets magnetised. When the magnet's magnetic field meats the the wires magnetic field it will push or attract the wire and make it move.

Other motors:
Every motor works very similar for example the one in the side, the electricity running through the copper wire will make it magnetic, so when that magnetic field meats the other one the wire starts to spin.
