correct me if im wrong (asad??)

but you cant directly without another term

pounds of thrust is a force measurement and horspower is a power measurement

that is pounds of thrust could convert into ft/lb, but to convert it to horsepower you need a time term

how many pounds of thurst/min for instance would convert to horsepower
