Electrical Motor Torque Equation

Torque can be calculated in Imperial units as

T = Php 63025 / n         (1)

where

T = torque (in lbf)

Php =  horsepower delivered by the electric motor

n = revolution per minute (rpm)

Alternatively 

Tft = Php 5252 / n         (1b)

where

Tft = torque (ft lbf)

  • 1 ft lbf = 1.356 Nm

Torque can be calculated in SI units as

T = PW 9.554 / n         (1)

where

T = torque (Nm)

PW =  power (watts)

n = revolution per minute (rpm)

Example - Electrical Motor Torque

Torque from an electrical motor with 100 hp and speed 1000 rpm can be calculated as

T = (100 hp) 63025 / (1000 rpm)

    = 6303 (in lbf)

To convert to foot pound-force - divide the torque by 12.
