## How do you know how much weight a motor can move?

The formula that relates mass, force and acceleration is: **F = m*a** , where F is the force, m is the mass and a is the acceleration. So a = F/m would be 14.715 kg*m/s² divided by 2 kg and therefore: ~7.358 m/s². This means within 1 second your robot would reach a speed of 7.36 m/s (or 26.5 km/h) if there was no friction.

## How do you find the maximum load of a DC motor?

Your desire to obtain the maximum load will be defined by your requirements and a specific speed. **P(mech) = (Torque{rated} x speed {RPM}) / 9550**. So if you are running at anything other than rated speed and you still require the same torque the power consumed less the losses will give you P(mech) or output power.

## What is the weight of a DC motor?

Package Includes :

## How much weight can a 3 HP motor lift?

Manufacturers have added excessive force auto shutoff and a nylon gears that fail when too much force is exerted. Actual figures are closer to 125 lbs for a 1/2 HP and **175 lbs for a** 3/4 HP.

## How much weight can a 5v motor lift?

It isn’t 60 kg/cm. It’s 60 kg-cm. It means the motor can lift a mass of 60 kg at 1 cm perpendicular distance from its shaft, **30 kg at** 2 cm. 60 kg-cm is the torque of the motor.

## How do you size a motor?

The quickest method to closely estimate motor horsepower is to use a digital clamp meter to measure current and voltage to the motor, and then perform a simple calculation. Use this formula to estimate motor horsepower. Horsepower(hp)= Voltage x Amperage x % EFF x power factor x 1.73/746.

## What is load on motor?

Most likely your operation’s motors account for a large part of your monthly electric bill. … Part-load is a term **used to describe the actual load served by the motor** as compared to the rated full-load capability of the motor. Motor part-loads may be estimated through using input power, amperage, or speed measurements.

## How do you calculate engine load?

When calculating motor loads, you need to know how to convert a motor’s current rating (given in amps) to a VA rating. To do this, **multiply the motor’s nameplate amperage by the supply voltage.**

## How do you calculate load?

Calculating an Electrical Load in a Simple Circuit

**Let Power = Voltage * Current (P=VI)**. Let Current = Voltage/Resistance (I=V/R). Apply Kirchoff’s Second Law, that the sum of the voltages around a circuit is zero. Conclude that the load voltage around the simple circuit must be 9 volts.

## How much weight can a 1/2 hp motor lift?

A 1/2 horsepower garage door opener can lift **approximately 300 pounds**, which is the average weight of a two-car steel door. A one-horsepower opener can easily lift approximately 400 pounds. The greater the horsepower, the faster the opener can lift the door, although some are designed to lift faster than others.
