What You Need to Know About Horsepower

It's safe to say that everyone in the modern world has heard the term "horsepower" before. Believe it or not, horsepower didn't always have something to do with vehicles. The term horsepower predates modern cars and trucks. But what is horsepower?

While working with coal mining ponies, James Watt figured that one horse performing at one horsepower can raise 330 pounds of coal using a pulley system at a rate of 100 feet per minute. More horsepower means your engine in your car produces more power, meaning it will take less time to accelerate to 60 miles per hour from a standstill position. This is why we have the term horsepower today.
