I was software engenneering student at college, i'm so out from the chemistry domain, but in high school we studied physics and chemistry, and now i have more than 6 years i didn't study about chimestry nor physics, so i have two questions.
1) I wondred from a thing, for ex: in cars, usualy we mesure the power in hp, which is equivalent to 745,7 watt, imagining a car engine which produces 100hp so it produces around 74570 watt, this is huge power, alghout we many lose many of power produced by the gasoline as a heat, so how much hydrocarbons free power??!!
2) How does the gasoline store all this power?!!! in other words, what does happens exactly to gasoline when burning/exploding to give this huge power??
these just a general questions, in this life i really like to understand how things work, even if they're so out for me and don't mean anything, but it still funny to understand how things works, and if i'm understanding something falsy or anything, just let me know it :)
