State whether the following statements are true or false.



(a) An electric motor converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.



Explanation : An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.

(b) An electric generator works on the principle of electromagnetic induction.



Explanation :

Electromagnetic induction is the process of production of electricity (electric current) when magnetic field changes

The electrical generator works on the principle that when a straight conductor is moved in a magnetic field, then current is induced in the conductor. 

(c) The field at the centre of a long circular coil carrying current will be parallel straight lines.


Explanation -

A long circular coil is a solenoid.
