ln case of dc shunt motor , how can a field winding produce rotational torque,whose field current is very small when compared to armature current. i mean how can it provide so much attraction ? Thanks in advance

In case of dc shunt motor , how can a field winding produce rotational torque,whose field current is very small when compared to armature current.

Because a field winding has many times the number of turns compared to a series winding that operates directly with the armature current. The attraction is proportional to ampere turns and not just amps.
