All About Horsepower

Horsepower is what determines how fast and how strong your vehicle is. The more horsepower you have in your car, the better it will run and be able to pull hills and mountains. In the 18th century, James Watt was a steam engine designer he wanted to sell more of his steam engines, so he came up with a power known as horsepower. He thought he uses this as a way to show his customers how strong his engines were.

According to some of the stories that were told at the time, he was working with a local coal mine. From there he started watching the ponies pull the workload. He determined that in a single minute, a pony could move 33,000 pounds. One horsepower is the equivalent of a single pony pulling 33 pounds of weight.
