AC motor question

Are all the AC interchangeable or do they change size at some point? How do I tell what size a motor on its own is?

The 20 ,30 ,50 and 70 use the same motor but each has a different impeller.
This is where I get many of my parts from;

The motor will not come with impeller .
You can use any of the impeller in any of the same motors like 20-70.
They will just have a different number of fins and different sizes.
Most try to slow down the larger units like placing a 30 impeller in a 50 filter..
I think going the other way could cause issues?
