Oh well. You're probably right. One dude is already on me because he doesn't understand that the "Energy" the dude is referring to in the first equation is likely Joules and he doesn't understand the difference between the distance something is moved linearly and the distance from center (radius) that force is applied. The whole article needs to be read in context but it's all just physics stuff.

Power can be measured in Watts (W) or Horsepower (HP). 1 HP is the same as
746 Watts.
Not to an electrician.... one HP is 1920 watts.... :D

746 Watts is always going to be faster at a higher rpm!

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
