Say you have three motors:
Motor 1 = .10 HP with x torque, performing task A
Motor 2 = 1 HP with y torque, performing task A
Motor 3 = 10 HP with z torque, performing task A
If the motors are the exact same model and type of motor, just a larger HP, then would the torque be directly proportional to the increase in HP for the same or proportional task?
For example, if the above statement is true, then torque could be calculated as follows:
x = (the constant)
y = 10x
z = 100x
Basically I want to know if I can use the above method I came up with in order to easily determine which motor to use for a project if my work load is higher (or lower) than I originally expected when I determine that I need a particular motor for the task.
