## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi i have a question regarding torque with impact guns and high torque drills.

So i just bought a impact gun which is rated at 1000nm at 2200 rpm how can this have such high torque were my cars engine makes only 400nm at 2500rpm

So i guess my question is how can we compare these torques to each other?

To my understanding horsepower is a function of torque and rpm

So for the torque wrench if we convert 1000nm to ftlbs we get around 737 ftlbs

So rpmxtorque/5252

2200 x 737/5252

We get 308hp which is obviously incorrect so what am i missing here?

Thanks hope i made sense in my question
