Answer : In case the back e.m.f. and the speed of a D.C. motor are doubled, the torque developed by the motor will remain unchanged.

Answer : The armature may burn if the back e.m.f. of a D.C. motor vanishes suddenly.

Answer : At the instant of starting when a D.C. motor is put on supply, it behaves like a low resistance circuit.

Answer : If the speed of a D.C. shunt motor is increased, the back e.m.f. of the motor will increase.

Answer : The mechanical power developed by a shunt motor will be maximum when the ratio of back e.m.f. to applied voltage is 0.5.
