i had a thought last night..

calculating horse power with gps...

i know im going to get flamed for this, so go on an get it all out of youeself if u feel the need to

and i know it will be pretty unacurate...

but here goes...

i did a bit of a search to refresh my menmory on calculating horse power

this is what i came up with

http://wiki.ehow.com/Calculate-Your-...nd-Horse-Power

http://www.glenbrook.k12.il.us/gbssc...rgy/u5l1e.html

so going with the first site..

we know the nmea refreshes every 1 sec.. so t = 1

mass would have to be entered in some ini file somewhere. this is one of the measurment that could make it in acurate

height would be the current altitude measurment - the altitude fromt he previous second. giving the rise over that one second

well this is just a start.

Calculate the Power (P) with the formula: (m*9,82*h)/t, where m=mass (your weight) in kilograms, h=height of staircase in metres and t=time in seconds. The number you get is in Watts wich is equal to Joule per second (J/s) and Newton metres per second (Nm/s).

Divide the number of Watts by 736 to get the number in horsepower.
