I have one which I don’t really understand.

P=Tω P=5kW

‘n’=1440 rev min^-1(rpm)

(hence derive ‘ω’)

Find value for T in Nm.

I think the rpm needs to be in seconds but it still does not really fit in, P is power in Kilowatt. I don’t suppose I need to work 1440rpm in radians per second do I?

It just hasn’t clicked for me I’m afraid.

Also, does anyone know of some good books that cover this subject, I have Engineering Mathematics by K A Stroud but it doesn’t cover it.

Thanks a lot guys.
