Does a regular desk fan work the same as an electric car motor?

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?

Best answer:

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