In turbine powered aircraft thrust is the most useful way to calculate aircraft performance because turbine engine thrust is very predictable.
However, piston engine aircraft do not lend themselves to predictable thrust measurement because of changing prop pitch, RPM, and carburetor manifold pressure. Power is a better way to calculate piston engine performance.
Here are some important concepts
In aviation, We know that force is equel to drag.
Because the propeller does not deliver all the engine's power,
