How Horsepower Affects Your Vehicle’s Performance

James Watt came up with the theory to illustrate to customers the great performance of his engines which he achieved by comparing them with the ability of a horse to pull a certain amount of weight per minute. i.e. One horse can perform 33,000 foot-pounds of work every minute.

In addition to that, horsepower is a reliable measure of an engine’s overall ability to do work (the maximum power that an engine can put out). Hence, rating a car’s engine performance is subsequently easy and effective.

At peak horsepower, the engine exerts maximum horsepower. This is achieved by reducing the weight in the automobile which in return leads to use of less power for an engine to accelerate. For instance, the more power a car has, the higher its top speed and also the faster it can accelerate (this implies more fuel consumption).
