Question by Ghost: Does a regular desk fan work the same as an electric car motor?
I like working with motors and machines and making things go and i figured since they figured out how to make an electric engine powerful enough for cars that i could trick out my fan to run at like a hundred MPH Lol So to get familiar with motors like that, I’d take my fan apart but do they have like the same concept behind them or what?

Normal desk fans use an AC induction motor which operates on a different principle to that of the DC motor found in a car.
