# Simple Horsepower Calculator

## NOTE! This is just an estimate, and is probably not all that accurate.

This program will give you a ballpark estimate of your horsepower. Please
don't make the mistake of quoting these numbers as if they meant anything.

There are two simple horsepower formulas that can estimate the
on-the-pavement horsepower for a given car.

## The ET method

This method uses the weight of the car and the time it took that car to
travel 1330 feet (¼ mile).

The formula is: hp = weight / (ET / 5.825)^{3}

## The Trap-speed method

This method uses the weight of the car and the speed at which the car
completed the quarter-mile run.

The formula is: hp = weight * (speed / 234)^{3}
