Hi,

I'm trying to find the resistance of a 12v brushed DC motor so I can calculate the stall current. I intend to run the motor from a 12v lead acid battery. As I understand it, calculating the resistance is possible by applying a small current to the motor and measuring the voltage with a multimeter. However, I've been unable to find a detailed description of how this is done. Would someone be so kind as to walk me through this process?

Many thanks

Michael
