Re: a hypitheticaly stupid question

oops I think i spotted at least one error above, 5mph is not 11.2 m/s it is 2.2 m/s.
so then

p = 446 newtons * 2.2 m/s

p = approx 1000 nm/s a newton meter is a joule, 1000 joules is a kj, a joule per second is a watt

p = 1 kj/s = 1000 watts

there are .746 hp in 1000 watts

1000 watts (.746 hp / 1000 watts) = 3/4 hp hmmmmm that doesnt seem right either nevermind!! lol
