Fleming's left-hand rule is used for electric motors, while Fleming's right-hand rule is used for electric generators. In an electric motor, the electric current and magnetic field exist (which are the causes), and they lead to the force that creates the motion (which is the effect), and so the left hand rule is used.
Hereof, what is the left hand rule in magnetic fields?
Fleming's Left Hand Rule. It is found that whenever an current carrying conductor is placed inside a magnetic field, a force acts on the conductor, in a direction perpendicular to both the directions of the current and the magnetic field.
What is Fleming's right hand rule?
Fleming's Right-hand Rule (for generators) shows the direction of induced current when a conductor attached to a circuit moves in a magnetic field. It can be used to determine the direction of current in a generator's windings.
