No, Ted, I did not. I normally don't use imperial units, altough I confess I have a complete set of tools in inches and one in mm (I have a Pontiac and a Nissan) and I know how many feet there are in one mile and how many pints in one gallon.
If you measure the torque in Newtons-m and the angular velocity in radians/s you get the power in watts, because a watt is one newton-meter/second. That's what God intended us to do... I hope Obama does something about it: US is the last bastion of fathoms, acres and other repulsive units.

Oops. Well, you can post whatever you want. Look at WB last post: how the circle of life is related with HP and torque beats me...
(sorry, sorry, it's kind of a joke).
However, I can too post whatever I want. So, go back to torque or I'll annoy you even more. You people behave like forums were made to speculate wildly instead of summing up the dry facts of life. Please, remember what Patrick Henry said: "give me the proper MKS equations or give me death!".
