What is pole of induction motor?

The stator of an induction motor consists of poles carrying supply current to induce a magnetic field that penetrates the rotor. To optimize the distribution of the magnetic field, windings are distributed in slots around the stator, with the magnetic field having the same number of north and south poles.

Besides, what is the difference between a 2 pole and 4 pole motor?

A 4-pole motor is with 4 magnetic poles on the rotor and the number of related electro-magnetic windings (circuits.) A 4-pole motor has about 3.0 ft.-lbs of torque per horsepower where a 2-pole motor has 1.5 ft.-lbs of torque. At 60 Hz, a 4-pole motor is about 1800 rpm where a 2-pole motor is 3600 rpm.

What is the rpm of a 6 pole motor?
