Post Power of a motor
Hi,

We're trying to find out what is the physical meaning of the "power" of a motor. We have a VEX 393 motor, and we would like to know weather we can relate the power to the voltage on the motor, or the torque.

Thanks :)

It's the percentage of time the motor is receiving current from the motor controller. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation
