    Hi all, I am looking for some help about electric motors:

    My primary axiom - voltage = speed while amps = torque. Is this correct?

    Following on, if I had one motor running 1 amp @ 600v and another running 1 amp @ 230v would the 600v motor have the equivalent of ~3 amps of power but expressed in a different form, so the 600v motor will run quicker but the 230v will have more torque. As a result, when placed under a load the 600v motor will slow down but the 230v will not (under equal load).

    Any of this in the right direction?
