Calculating Horsepower

I was poking around on the web today to find out how to calculate the horsepower of my machine and came across this method, based on torque and rpm's. My torque - 14.5 foot pounds, multiplied by my rpm's - 3600, divided by
5,252. 14.5 X 3600 = 52,000 divided by 5,252 = 9.939, so effectively a 10 horsepower engine. Am I on the right track?

It's Only a Number. Either it does the Job, or You need More Displacement.
