Armature windings & comutator.

Why do some motors have a small and others large wire for winding size(dia), and a high or low number of comutator segments? Second what does the number of winding segments mean? High v/s low. :confused:

Yes it does. I may have some more later. I need to process this first. So it all comes down to building the strongest magnetic field you can at a given speed or rpm range? Kind of like the camshaft in an ICE building cylinder pressure?

I have been reviewing this post and previous ones I have posted,and need some help understanding. I understand what the commutator is and it's segments, but the windings confuse me.
