Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the following formula: brake power = 2(pi)NT

I also have the following figures:RPM (instant)= 3550rpm andN° of cycles over 30secs= 880.

The engine is four stroke-one cylinder. Just wondering how do I covert the number of cycles to RPM?

I have divided by 0.5 because it was for half a minute (30secs) but it seems I have to divide by 0.5 again is that because it is a four-stroke cycle?

And in the brake power forumla what is the units of N if T is in Nm.

CHEERS!
