Well, which one is the integral or derivative of the other?  What are the
units?  foot-pounds and foot-pounds/time?  In which case the torque could be
derivative of the power and the second comment would be correct.

But is the torque actually the derivative of the hp?  help, I've fallen and
I can't get up!  No, it's not d(hp)/dt, it's just hp/t.  different plate o'

especially considering I've substituted "t" for rpms.
