## For induction motor the relation among synchronous speed (Ns), rotor speed (N) and slip (s) is given by

For induction motor the relation among synchronous speed (Ns), rotor speed (N) and slip (s) is given by:

1. N = (s – I) Ns
2. N = ( I +s) N
3. N = sNs
4. N = (l – s)Ns

Correct answer: 4. N = (l – s)Ns

## The rotor output of an induction motor running at slip s is expressed mathematically in the form

The rotor output of an induction motor running at slip s is expressed mathematically in the form:

1. s * rotor input
2. (1 – s) * rotor input
3. (1 + s) * rotor input
4. (1 – s) * (1 + s) * rotor input

Correct answer: 1. s * rotor input

## The synchronous speed of a 3-phase induction motor having 10 poles and connected to a 50 Hz source AC source is
