Question : WHAT
is bhp of a vehicle ? How is bhp measured/calculated and is
there a connection between the engine capacity and number of bhp
it produced ?
The brake horsepower of an engine is the work that an engine can
do and while it can be theoretically calculated, provided one
has the right information and formulae, normally when one talks
about bhp one is relating to the horsepower that is developed
when the engine is run on a dynamometer.
There is no relationship between the engine capacity and the
horsepower developed and the power developed is dependent on the
state of tune of the engine.
