 Summary

In layman's, I just want to learn the proper method or formula for calculating the motors ability to pull X weight on the units trailer.
Thank you so much for your time, as any guidance would be very valued.
Hello everyone! I am trying to figure out a work load / Pulling ability of trailers for the company I work for. We produce Electric bikes that have attachable utility trailers..
The general Wattage output for these Ebikes is 1000w. The trailers Mechanical advantage = 62.15MA. (WR=11 & AR= 4.5mm). But I am unsure how to further apply this formula to figure a capable weight the motors can pull / its Mechanical Advantage. Should I use the motors Torque or convert its watts to N m/s? Then converting this to usable newtons has me stumped.
