so we have kg*m^2/s^3
1 N is kg *m / s^2 > Nm/s
1 J is Nm > J/s
1 W is J/s, so we are left with pure watts
1 hp is 0.7457 kW
Essentially we take the result of the first part and *10^3 / 0.7457, or multiply by 0.01341.
I'm not sure what the second part of the equation is, the addition, but in order to add numbers, the units MUST match. Pmotive=1/2*Cd*A*rho*v^3 is normal for a flat surface. What is Crr1?

Apologies for the long time to respond. Crr1 is the rolling resistance of the tires. Thank you for the detailed formula breakdown. I also looked at the updated spreadsheet boxchain provided. All this information provides a much clearer picture.
Thanks again!
