say a car has 400 horsepower at the fly wheel with a V8. can you divide 400 by 8 to give 50 hp of power transmitted by each piston ? Just for a rough estimate, does it even come close to the real power transmitted by each piston or is way far off and wrong ? The reason why I think of this way is because, consider 1 person being able to deadlift 100 kg. Now 4 people should be able to deadlift close 400 kg together ?
