Acceleration to Horsepower ?

Postby CyberLynx » Sat Apr 24, 2004 10:28 pm

If I want to accelerate a body with a known mass into a certain speed in a certain amount of time. Can I then calculate how many horsepowers that is needed to do this? (disregarding friction, air resistance, etc)

Example: A car with the mass of 1.5 ton, accelerates to 100km/h, in 7seconds. How many horsepowers is needed to do this?
