In this animated object, learners examine how the rotation of an induction AC motor's armature slips behind the synchronous rotational speed of the stator's field to create magnetic fields. These fields interact and produce torque. A quiz completes the activity.

A 3 phase induction motor has negligible stator impedance. The speed of the motor is controlled by rotor resistance at constant torque load. under these conditions the slip of the motor is directly or inversely proportional to what?
