BHP vs TORQUE

Recommended Posts

Hello friends..

 

I have observed that when people are comparing power output/performance

most of them only check BHP break horse power and ignore Torque.

 

I believe Torque is an equally important.'

 

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

                           BHP and TORQUE

IS IMPORTANT. Which many of us are not able to distinguish.

 

So LETS DEFINE & DISTINGUISH EACH ONE

 

Easiest way I can define is

  • BHP gives a Cheetah like power

  • Torque gives you Elephant like power

 lets learn more about it and where each one is most required

I think we have discussed in details about this in sgiitks older threads

 

Anyways

power=torque X rpm

 

diesel more torque less rpm

petrol less torque more rpm

 

With modern technology the diesel is now on par with power of petrol .

a car that has more torque will get to 0-100 faster than a car which has less torque.

(the other factors should remain constant like car weight, BHP, wind resistance etc etc)

 

and a higher BHP figure will give you more top speed.
