the mean figuers of the manufacturer resulting from tests over more than one motor of the same type - this is how the quality testing of the mufacturing process is done....

The Iron Loss is only indirect related to the RPM - It is related to the magnetic Cycles and these depends not only on the RPM but also on the numer of magnetic pols.
Further more the CC eCalc does extrapolate the Iron Loss (Io) from the mesured mag. cycles (@ Io Voltage) to the effectiv mag. Cycles (at operational Voltage) by using an adequat mathematic model.

nevertheless your Calc is also well done.....

Hi eJets
Question 1: Yes, I have tested only one sample
Anyway some data from some manufacturers are not accurate
Question 2: For a given motor, the number of magnetic poles is fixed
