My 500 Horses


Notes

Reminding us of the 60 watt light bulb, Scottish P.Eng. James Watts in the late 1800s discovered that a healthy horse could uprear about 150 lbs. 220 feet in 60 seconds, equating to 33,000 foot lbs. per minute. Further formulations found that 1 horsepower as a unit of mechanical energy (745.7 watts) was required to lift 550 lbs. 1 foot per second. Later test trials noted a typical car required roughly 20-25 hp to propel its mass 45-55 mph. Thank you for listening to my playlist, hope you enjoy.
