Hello All!

Why must the coil in an electric motor kit be wound in only one direction?

Why must the current change direction every 180 degrees in the motor?

Thanks in advance.

It has been a while since I have considered such questions, and although I have an idea, I'm not sure how to explain it. This isn't related to homework, is it?

Yes it is related to homework. My apologies for posting in the wrong section.
