New York - The guys at Engineering Explained have made a detailed video illustrating the difference between torque and power.

Here's what they had to say: "Which is better, horsepower or torque? Two words that are often stated in the car community, but often misunderstood. This video seeks to clarify the difference between the two, without silly analogies like "kilowatts is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you" (which, by the way, is highly inaccurate). 

"Torque is a force acting at a radius, while kilowatts simply incorporates time into the equation. This video will discuss the differences, how each applies to internal combustion engines, how they relate, what peak torque and peak horsepower actually mean, and how to analyze torque and horsepower curves.

"Finally, what's more important for acceleration, a car with lots of power, or lots of torque?"
