Solving for the change in engine or motor horsepower performance using the trap speed method.
change in engine or motor horsepower performance 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. Power will need to be measured before and after performance or after market parts have been installed.


vehicle weight
speed or velocity before modification
speed or velocity after modification


weight = 0    = 0  pound
velocity1 = 0    = 0  mile/hour
velocity2 = 0    = 0  mile/hour
