What is the difference between ac motor and ac generator

There are several designs of AC motor, brush type and induction.
Inputing AC voltage activates both the rotor and stator, in order to give motion.
They will not work in reverse as a generator, because of the lack of an excitation current.
An AC generator, although similar looking and having the same components, needs DC excitation of the rotor to give the magnetic field which is rotated inside the stator.

Another, more fundamental difference: A motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy whereas a generator uses mechanical energy to produce electricity.
