Motor top speed, measured in revolutions per minute (RPM), is the maximum rotational speed that an electric motor can achieve under specific operating conditions. It is a crucial parameter in determining the performance characteristics of motors used in various applications, from robotics to electric vehicles.

The formula for calculating the top speed of a motor is:

\[ \text{RPM} = K_v \times V \times LF \]

Where:

- \( \text{RPM} \) is the top speed in revolutions per minute
- \( K_v \) is the motor's KV rating in RPM/V (revolutions per minute per volt)
- \( V \) is the applied voltage in volts
- \( LF \) is the load factor, a dimensionless value between 0 and 1

Let's calculate the top speed for a motor with the following specifications:

- Given:
- KV Rating (\( K_v \)) = 1000 RPM/V
- Applied Voltage (\( V \)) = 11.1 V
- Load Factor (\( LF \)) = 0.85

- Apply the motor top speed formula: \[ \text{RPM} = K_v \times V \times LF \]
- Substitute the known values: \[ \text{RPM} = 1000 \text{ RPM/V} \times 11.1 \text{ V} \times 0.85 \]
- Perform the calculation: \[ \text{RPM} = 9,435 \text{ RPM} \]

Let's visualize the factors affecting motor top speed:
