spec a dc motor for a vehicle Answered
I am making an electric vehicle. Assume no friction on a flat surface.
The vehicle will have two dc electric motors preferably 24v or 48v system as space is an issue(about 3.5 x 4 feet)
one motor on each drive axle.
The vehicle will weigh 2000lbs
have a max speed of 10miles per hour
be able to reach max speed in under 5 seconds
overall wheel diameter will be 16 inches
Can be geared down to attain needed torque but must go up to 10miles per hour.
Please include formulas so I can at least know how to do this in the future.
I need to know power, torque, rpm needed for electric motor.
