    Default Things that are alike but different....

    Here's a few.

    What is the difference between a motor and an engine?

    A wagon and a trailer?

    A bullet and a shell?

    Asphalt and tarmac?

    Default What's different?

    If the person you're talking to knows what you really mean when using them there's usually not a problem. That is, until someone wants to have some fun. You know, being all proper and all.

    Identify what you have control over and find peace with what you don't.

    "There", "they're", or "their"... are you certain?
    Or was that "shore"?

    That's not true. I used to specify motors for special build air cond. equipment. Their rating was h.p. because that's what they produced; actually they produce mechanical energy measured in watts and 746 of them equals 1 h.p..

    Engines (internal or external combustion) burn fuel and motors don't and of course also use the h.p. measurement.
