The amount of work the engine can do over a period of time. It is measured in Horsepower. One Horsepower is equal to the energy needed to lift 550 pounds at a height of one foot for one second. 1 PS=1.01387 bhp.
The maximum power output the engine can
produce over a particular range of speed.
Sudden braking at high speeds can cause the brakes to lock up and the car to skid. The electronic sensors in the Anti Lock braking System rapidly pressurize and depressurize the brakes, thus stopping them from locking up.
