[DMCForum] Last Post For Martin



The distance is the circular rotation of the crankshaft -- the
"revolutions" in RPM's.

All the key components are in the classic HP definition: force,
distance, and time. Look very closely and maybe you'll finally see them:

HP = Torque x RPMs / 5252

It's all there: force (torque), distance (revolutions), and time
(minutes).

That formula is older than all of us put together. It's not something
I just made up. Why am I being bloodied and sullied for a calculation
that isn't even mine! If you don't like it, complain to the history books.

Urp.
