That last one is my favorite. Equations are our friends.

One of these articles says something very interesting ... due to the
math involved, "below 5252 rpm any engine's torque number will always be
higher than its horsepower number, and above 5252 rpm any engine's
horsepower number will always be higher than its torque number. At 5252
rpm the horsepower and torque numbers will be exactly the same."

Just some stuff to mull over while you have your coffee ... and while I
have mine. :)
