Question:

The 2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is listed as "390 horsepower at 6000 rpm, 410 pound-feet of torque at 4800 rpm." Pretty cool, but what is the value of this torque in SI units?


I'm not sure what the question is asking for, i tried to just convert the 410 lb ft torque to Nm, and it said i was wrong. Any hints on how this is done? thanks. Dont know much about cars :(

ahhh.. nvm, just got it, i only converted to kg meters the first time, forgot the 9.81, so i guess all the info on the horsepower and stuff is just red herring? hmph
