(neglect drivetrain losses and air/ road drag) Constant Power Eqn 200 HP = 110,000 ftlb/s 30 mph = 44 ft/s 3200 lb 99.4 slugs True or False It is possible for power to be negative . 4 Example (prob. 4.3.4) Given: h = 30 m e m = 50% Electricity costs $.15/kWhr Find: Cost to pump 1000 liters Efficiency True or False It is possible for efficiency to be negative .
