Is force times acceleration equal to power?

  1. Mar 10, 2012 #1
    power = p(max)*Area*mean piston speed*rate of rotation*constant
    power = p(max)*Area*acceleration*constant
    power = force*acceleration*constant

    Is this right?

    hi renjith_p! :smile:

    i'm not following that :confused:

    power = energy per time = work done per time

    = force "dot" distance per time

    = force "dot" velocity​

    Oops!!! that was so stupid of me :) You're right.
