# VACE Motor Torque Calculations

## Is a VACE Motor Possible?

You can use this web page to calculate the total
"relative" torque on a VACE torus due to a single
"external" VACE.

The general setup is shown below.

It is assumed that the force between two VACEs follows
Ampere's force law.

Using this equation, the forces and torques are tabulated.
It is assumed that a VACE is positioned in the torus at each theta
increament.

Just fill in the following information and click on the
"Calculate" button. Once the table is displayed, click on your
web browser's "Back" button to return to this page.
