Question

# A model aircraft internal-combustion engine produces $10 \mathrm{~W}$ of power. How much power is this in $(a) \mathrm{lbf} \cdot \mathrm{ft} / \mathrm{s}$ and $(b) \mathrm{hp}$ ?

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 6

Given

The power in Watts is $P=10 \mathrm{~W}$

Required

We are asked to convert this unit of power into different units

(a) $\mathrm{~lbf \cdot ft/s}$

(b) $\mathrm{~hp}$

Strategy

To approach the solution, we code the value of the power in Watts and insert it in the EES and apply the conversion function.
