## How do you calculate power to weight?

It’s very easy to calculate a power-to-weight ratio. Simply divide the power output of a vehicle by its weight. For example, if you have a car that weights 2000 pounds and has 250 hp, the PWR will be as follows: 250 / 2000 = 0.125 hp for every pound of car.

How many kW is a tonne?

1 ton ≈ 3.5169 kilowatts.

What is a good power-to-weight ratio?

Power-to-weight ratios vary across a wide spectrum. Generally, untrained riders have an FTP below 2.0 W/kg for men and 1.5 W/kg for women, while professional racers may be capable of sustaining more than 6.0 W/kg for men and 5.5 for women.

### What is a kWh vs kW?

A kilowatt-hour (kWh) and a kilowatt (kW) may sound like the same thing, but they’re not quite tomato-tomahto. While both are interrelated units of measurement, the important difference between kWh and kW is that a kWh reflects the total amount of electricity used, whereas a kW reflects the rate of electricity usage.

### What is my watts per kg?

Simply put, your watts per kilo (w/kg) is your power to weight ratio. Watts per Kilo is your max power output, in watts, divided by your weight in kilos. For example, someone with a weight or mass of 80kg with a sustainable power output of 280 watts will have a power to weight ratio of 3.5 watts per kilo (3.5W/kg).

Is 4 watts per kg good?

So it is that many club level cyclists have the goal of being able to achieve a functional threshold power (FTP) of 4W/kg. However, 4W/kg is still better than most club level cyclists, and is literally lapping everyone on the couch. So it’s a great goal to target.
