🇮🇳 FACTS ABOUT INDIA 🇮🇳
Meerut is a city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The name Meerut , properly spelled Merath or Mirath, is variously derived. According to one account it was originally known as Mahi Rashtra, the name given to it by one Mahi, a distinguished architect, who built a palace at Indraprashta or Dehli, in exchange for which he received the land on which Meerut now stands from the king Yudhishthira. This Mahi is said to have built the Andar Kot, a high brick fortress , the remains of which are still (1904 ) traceable .
The JATs on the other hand, allege that Meerut was founded as Mayarashtra (lit. Maya’s country) by Maya, who was the father of Mandodari, Ravana’s wife in the Ramayana. Meerut was the capital of Maya. Thus the city is also known as ‘Ravan Ka Sasural’ literally meaning “Ravana’s wife’s home”.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
HOW DOES AN ELECTRIC MOTOR GET ROTATED
An electric motor is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor’s magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to generate force in the form of torque applied on the motor’s shaft.
A current-carrying conductor will experience a force when placed within a magnetic field. The principle of the electric motor is that it converts electrical energy into kinetic energy (mechanical energy) through the interaction of the two magnetic fields.
They operate using principles of electromagnetism, which shows that a force is applied when an electric current is present in a magnetic field.
