Solving for engine horsepower using the trap speed method.
engine horsepower using the trap speed method
This method uses the speed or velocity at the end of a quarter mile run. It is used to give an estimate of vehicle(car, truck, motorcycle) engine horsepower. Weight should include the mass of the vehicle, driver and passenger.

Inputs:

vehicle weight
speed or velocity


Conversions:

weight = 0    = 0  pound
velocity = 0    = 0  mile/hour

Solution:

horsepower (hp)
= NOT CALCULATED
