    As part of a lab report on a three phase induction motor I have to calculate the slip which is fair enough, but to do so I have to work out the synchronous speed. The only equations I have found for working this out involve the number of poles, which I'm not sure whether I have been given the information for. Could you check out the connections diagram posted below and see if you can make any sense of it. Sorry that its not exactly easy to read.
    Otherwise could you tell me if I could work out the synchronous speed without knowing the pole number. All I know is its a three phase motor.
