## Specific Power Output Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Specific Power Output = Brake Power/Area of Cross Section
Ps = BP/A
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Specific Power Output - (Measured in Watt) - Specific Power Output of an engine is defined as the power output per unit piston area.
Brake Power - (Measured in Watt) - Brake Power is the power available at the crankshaft.
Area of Cross Section - (Measured in Square Meter) - Area of cross section is the enclosed surface area, product of length and breadth.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Brake Power: 0.008 Kilowatt --> 8 Watt (Check conversion here)
Area of Cross Section: 30 Square Centimeter --> 0.003 Square Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Ps = BP/A --> 8/0.003
Evaluating ... ...
Ps = 2666.66666666667
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
2666.66666666667 Watt -->2.66666666666667 Kilowatt (Check conversion here)
2.66666666666667 Kilowatt <-- Specific Power Output
