I am yet to pic up that book and locate the formula you are referencing. As I mentioned before my guess is that the formula is not simply relating torque to angular velocity, but other variables are involved. I will go to the library and request the book. Can you tell me the page number? Thanks.
P.S. I edited my previous post here as I just noticed I mistyped. Rotational "speed" should have been "acceleration", meaning, torque "losses" scale up linearly with rototional acceleration.
