RPM of erector set motor?

  • #1
This is a really dumb question that I have not found an answer for.

I recently bought an erector set with a 3-6 volt motor. It has the option of 2 or 4 AA batteries.

I am trying to figure out what the RPM's are with 4 AA batteries for a small hobby project of mine.

I know this is simple stupid for some, but can someone give me an educated guess as to what the RPM's most likely are?

Thanks very much. :)

Does anyone have an educated guess or a method for me to figure this?

I have googled the crap out of this and am having 0 luck. I just need a decent guestamate. The exact number isn't important at this time. I'm building a little project and want to limit the final RPM to around 12000.

I cant for the life of me figure out a method to gathering this info. Please help. lol

You may measure the "no load" rpm of the motor with various voltages applied.
The motor rpm will depend on two variables: the applied voltage, as you know, and
the load the motor is driving. A "heavy" load will slow your motor greatly; too large a load would cause it to stall.
