Then why bump it :snipe:.

I've said my bit, and I think Ivan and I are man enough that we can agree to disagree on this :dunno:. I'd hardly call it a showdown either, I probably wouldn't have had...

Ah, I forgot an example I wanted to include that I think causes problems for measuring torque in different units.

Consider concentric gears (both with the same fulcrum) sharing an ideal shaft. ...

I'm not the grammar police, I'm the unit police ;) And just to clarify, that's the *only* point I'm arguing here. If it wasn't otherwise good it wouldn't matter a bit to me if you were using the...

Yeah, like I said, your sticky is good :)

I don't think low-end torque vs. high-end torque is a diversion, high-end torque is what gives you a good HP rating. The units talk will go away once you...

That's a good description. I think a summary of some different torque curves with some qualitative descriptions of what they mean behind the wheel makes the most sense. HP follows from that, but I...

Heh, your english is good enough that I'm being every bit as hard on you as I would be on a native speaker, so I'd say you're doing fairly well. If your location wasn't listed as Denmark I wouldn't...

Fair enough.

I guess I'm just of the opinion that we need to be clear and unambiguous in how things are described to avoid misleading people who are just trying to get an understanding of the...

As an aside, does anyone have a source I can check that would agree with torque units being force per unit distance?

Despite noting that I'm fairly certain, the fact is that I'm *never* so certain...

Agreed, sometimes I just can't make a statement without making a disclaimer :)



Right, each piston exerts a downward force through the connecting rod to the crankshaft.

You're not the only...

Yeah, a Joule in a unit time is exactly what I meant.

Energy and power don't have direction though, they're strictly scalar quantities.

That's fair enough, but making torque at high RPM does have more advantage than not having to shift as quickly (see below).



You don't put power to the road, nor torque for that matter (I know...

And it would, just like you produce more torque with a breaker bar you do more work with a longer stroke.



You don't lose torque with a bigger wheel (well, you can make an argument about...

I haven't read through this thread, but Gothche seems either terribly confused or really bad at explaining things.

The only really great explanation of HP and torque I've ever found is this page...
