Power of the Horses

Watt is Going On?

James Watt- What a Genius

James Watt figured out how to make steam engines work better, and then he tried selling his invention. He compared his invention to the power of horse, that way everyone would know what he was talking about. He started brainstorming to figure out how much work a pony could do and he found out that the average horse could do about the same amount as 1.5 ponies. Then he ended up calling that horsepower. Horsepower can also be called watts. That is a summary of "How Many Horses".
