The equation to calculate horsepower is simple: **Horsepower = Torque x RPM / 5,252.**Mar 17, 2020

Engine horsepower is measured using a dynamometer, but what the dynamometer really does is measure the torque output of the engine, as well as the RPM – or “revolutions per minute”. These numbers are plugged into a formula **(torque x RPM / 5,252)** to determine the horsepower.

To better understand this—and avoid unhappy memories of arithmetic class—picture a lone horse raising a 33-pound bucket of water from the bottom of a 1000-foot-deep **well in 60 seconds**. That amount of work equals one horsepower. An example of an early Watt steam engine, which was designed in approximately 1785.

horsepower, the common unit of power; i.e., the rate at which work is done. In the British Imperial System, one horsepower equals **33,000 foot-pounds of work per minute**—that is, the power necessary to lift a total mass of 33,000 pounds one foot in one minute.

Calculate the horsepower or CC by multiplying or dividing by 15. The general rule is **for every 15 CC there is 1 HP**. For example, for a 150 CC engine you would take 150 divided by 15, which equals 10 HP.

Right **between 200 and 300 horsepower** is the sweet spot for many drivers. Be cautious with models that approach 300 horsepower, unless the vehicle is a heavy truck or another large model.

300hp, or horsepower, **is not considerably significant**. However, It’s plenty of power for most applications! For a sports car, 300hp is a great benchmark, showing that a car will be lots of fun. This means the engine is serious about performance, and likely consumes lots of fuel.

Over 700 hp is attainable now by splashing some cash at the dealer, but **1,000 hp still isn’t typical**, although more and more cars are grabbing headlines with that magic number. If you want to experience the rush of 1,000 hp or more, these are the cars to do it in.

James Watt, who invented steam engines, figured out a mathematical way to equate horses to engine power. … Thus the term horsepower was invented. **Watt measured the capability of a big horse to pull a load** and found it could pull a weight of 150-pounds while walking at 2.5 miles per hour.

So when you feel your neck push back into your seat after slamming on the gas, that’s the torque at work. Now when it comes to how fast your car can go, that’s where the **horsepower** takes over. Horsepower is why certain cars with turbocharged V8 or better engines can hit top speeds of 300 mph.

## How do you calculate speed from horsepower?

## Can you turbo any car?

## Can a car have 10000 horsepower?

Relating Horsepower to Speed

You know the horsepower rating of the engine, and now you know the thrust, so you can calculate the speed the car will travel using the relationship: **Speed = Power/Force**. To arrive at an answer, we note that that 1 Horsepower = 550 ft.

In short, although **you can theoretically add a turbocharger to almost any naturally-aspirated engine**, it’s not a plug-and-play process. There are a lot of parts that require careful consideration. Luckily, some tuning companies have taken some of the guesswork out of the process.
