The main difference between motor and pump is that a motor is a device that converts electricity to mechanical energy which results in motion, whereas a pump is a device that is used to transfer a fluid from one place to another. Both of these devices are very important in fields such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, constructions, robotics, automobile engineering and other fields.

➤ Motor is an electro-mechanical device that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
➤ Pump is a mechanical device used to raise or move fluids using suction or pressure.
➤ Electrical motors can be considered as prime mover.
➤ Pump considered as hydraulic machine which raise pressure of fluid.
➤ Motors are used in almost everything like fans, compressors, conveyor systems, robotics, electric vehicles, lifts, lathe machines, vacuum cleaners, grinders, shearing machines, etc.
➤ Pumps are used in both industrial and commercial applications. From water treatment plants to paper mills. pumps are used everywhere.
