Re: [DMCForum] Urp -- Now I Remember Why Gave Up On The Forum




What is your point?  there's no such thing as horsepower without torque just like there is no such thing as speed without distance.  This doesn't mean that it doesn't "exist". 

You call horsepower a "force" in this message, which means you still don't understand what the hell it is.  Force is Newtons, torque&work Nm, horsepower Nm/s.

Your comments imply that you disagree that a 240HP, 153ftlb engine is more powerful than a 130HP, 153ftlb engine.  This really would make you the village idiot.

Horsepower is a chimera. Remove either torque or RPM from the
equation, and it vanishes. It ceases to exist. "Horsepower" is nothing
more than an _expression_ of a certain amount of torque produced at a
certain number of engine revolutions.

Did you not take high school algebra?

How can I make it any plainer: Torque is measured independent of
RPM's. Torque is certainly measured independent of "horsepower".
Likewise RPM's are measured independent of torque or "horsepower". But
I absolutely defy you to merely express "hosepower" without both, much
less try to measure it as some sort of independent force. Can't be done.
