Actual H.P. = 33, 000 ft.-lbs. per min. in all calculations, but the actual work of a horse is about 22, 000 ft.-lbs. per minute. Watt's nominal H.P. for low pressure engine (pressure 7 lbs. per sq. in. above atmosphere), = area sq. ins. X 7 X 128 x ty stroke ft.- -33, 000 = d in ins.2 X stroke ft. 4-47.

Bourne's N.H.P. three times that of Watt, viz. for a pressure of 21 lbs. above atmosphere. In all machinery actuated by fluid pressure, the square inch, which is the standard unit, introduces a needless complication. James Watt lost a good opportunity in not establishing the circular inch as the standard.-Circ. ins. x-7854 = sq. ins. Sq. ins. x 1-27324 = circ. ins. At the present time N.H.P. is a useless commercial term, generally depending upon size of cylinder, and irrespective Sometimes N.H.P. for non-condensing engines was (i2 X y' stroke ft.--20, for simple condensing engines d2-f. 30, and for compound engines (D2-j-d?).4-33 or 30.
