Do you know where
horse power came from? FYI: 1 HP=330 lbs of coal pulled vertically 100'
within 1 minutes time. James Watt was trying to design a steam powered engine to
replace a team of 2 horses to lift coal out of a mine. This became the US
standard for measuring power. Also, 745 watts = 1 HP. The typical 120VAC home
outlet can supply up to about 1,500 watts, or about 2 HP.
