Not quite a kw. 746 Watts = 1 HP.

exactly. the conversions are never equally perfect in aspect of numbers.

And in a cylinder, work=piston area x pressure of explosion x stroke. What I dont get is isn't that torque? I want to know what is the difference between hp and torque in terms of engine power. Is hp like torque but at a higher RPM? So if you have a lot of torque at low RPM the engine spins really faster at low, so when you go to high RPM where hp is higher, then is hp torque at high rpm? Damn im really confused

argh, horsepower IS NOT work..... work would be related to torque, n then torque x RPMS = HP

Does this remind you of anybody who just left? Or maybe even the person he's challenging. I think we have our newest Village Idiot.

Perhaps he doesn't know everything about operating a keyboard.

I think he meant 16, because he doesn't know how to use capslock...he is the same age as CAREXPERT, but why would he diss himself?...

Who is it?...I can't think of anyone who has been banned recently...
