Note 1 to entry: It represents the efficiency of converting electric energy into mechanical energy by the electro-mechanical coupling effect, and it is defined as the square root of the ratio of the mechanical energy stored (*U*_{m}) to the total input electric energy transferred (*U*_{i}):

$k=\sqrt{\frac{{U}_{\text{m}}\text{\hspace{0.05em}}}{{U}_{\text{i}}}}$
