Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm comparing two electrical appliances, one with a DC motor and the other with an AC motor. The AC appliance has 250 watts. The DC appliance has 0.6 amps and 120 volts, and its wattage is 72. Given these specs, I would like to know which appliance would have a more powerful motor?

In addition, what would be the AC watt equivalent of a DC motor with the above specs?
