As you pedal the bike, the moving wheel provides the kinetic energy which turns the knob which turns a shaft inside the generator. The shaft rotates a coil of wire through the magnetic lines of force of a stationary magnet. This causes current to flow which lights the headlight. D. Motor 1. The opposite of a generator is a motor. Here, electrical energy is converted to kinetic energy. Both the generator and the motor are examples of electromagnetic induction. 2. A motor consists of an electromagnet that rotates on an axle. It rotates continuously between the two poles of a fixed permanent magnet. 3.
