How do you work out the peak power of a motor based on its maximum torque and rpm?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've figured out that you can get the maximum torque via (coil area) * (# turns) * (current) * (magnetic field)

And I get that the peak power should be proportional to the rpm. But it doesn't seem to be as simple as:

(maximum torque) * (rpm) <-- aka, torque * time taken for a revolution

I've looked all over and have found a bunch of instances of people taking the max torque and multiplying it by a sec^-1, but this sec^-1 value seems to always be the max torque divided by 9.549.. which seems completely arbitrary to me and leads me to believe I'm missing something more fundamental here.
