Mechanics A basic blender has two main parts to it: a container and a blade assembly. The blade assembly, usually made up of two blades, a lower blade and an upper blade, chops and mixes the contents within the container that is sealed tightly in order to keep the contents from spilling or leaking out. The blades are positioned on top of each other through a center rotating section. They have curved outer blade sections that are able to create a small whirlpool when operated with contents inside the container. This only applies when there is a good amount of liquid inside the container because the liquid’s swirling movement is what brings the solid foods from the top of the container to the bottom where they are then blended. Without liquid, only the bottom portion of the solids would be blended. The blade assembly cannot just run or spin on its own. A blender typically uses an electric motor to operate it. What the motor does is create a spin that rotates the blade

Unformatted text preview: assembly. A motor essentially uses the idea of magnetism to work. The fundamental law of magnetism states that likes repel and opposites attract. A basic motor contains the following six parts: an armature, a communicator, brushes, an axle, a field magnet, and a power source. The armature acts as an electromagnet or a magnetic field by coiling wire around two or more poles of a metal core. One side of it will be positive while the other is negative. It has an axle where a communicator is also attached. The communicator and brushes are used to switch the magnetic field of the armature around. The point of that is to create a continuous attracting and repelling force from the field magnet, a fixed magnet with a positive end and a negative end, to the armature, which therefore continuously spins the armature around its axle....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
