1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but why doesn’t a motor start right away as the voltage is increased above zero? Here is the circuit and some other info. 2. Relevant equations KVL/KCL V=IR 3. The attempt at a solution Does this have anything to do with the load current? I'm not really sure why the motor doesn't start. I would think that it should start at a small voltage, but move very slowly. Does the load resistance have anything to do with this?
