as the title states im looking to solve how to calculate power (horsepower) by measuring the change in rpm over a few seconds. torque will be kept constant at 200lbs/ft.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

hp= (torque x rpm) / 5252

since torque will be held constant it reduces to:

hp= C x rpm where C is 200/5252

so lets say i measure the change in rpm over 1 second, how do i use this to calculate horsepower?

..i used to be good at solving problems like this, and i feel crappy that i've lost that ability

if you could shed some light as to how i can set this question up and how to go about finding its solution tht would be great!

thanks
