P = \frac{{2π NT}}{{60}}\)\(P = \frac{{2\pi NT}}{{60}}\)

Where P is in watt

N = Angular velocity

T = Torque

Calculation:

Given,

T' = 2T

\(P \propto T\)

\(\frac{{P'}}{P} = \frac{{T'}}{T} = \frac{{2T}}{T}\) ⇒ P' = 2P

So, If the horse power of a shaft subjected to torque alone is doubled, horse power can be increased 2 times.
