Rotating Horsepower formula

\(\large{ RHP = \frac{ \tau \; s }{ 5252 } }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ RHP }\) = rotating horsepower \(\large{\frac{lbf-ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{Btu}{s}}\)
\(\large{s}\) = speed \(\large{\frac{ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m}{s}}\)
\(\large{ \tau }\)  (Greek symbol tau) = torque \(\large{lbf-ft}\) \( N-m \)
