Hi Riders!

I’ve got a technical question about computation of power in Zwift.

My naive understanding is that power P (measured in watts) is the product of force F (measured in newtons?) and velocity V (measured in revolution per minute (rpm)): P=F*V. I think we have all experienced the relationship between these different quantities as Zwift would increase the level of resistance when your cadence does down
I would like to know whether it is fine to simply compute Force as Power divided by Velocity (eg if i do 230 watts for 1 minute at 85 rpm, then F=230/85=2.706 - Then i think i would need to apply some other physics formula to convert it into newtons or something else relevant).
I am interested in this topic because i would like to know whether the force i apply on the pedals when i do strength workouts is similar to the one i apply when i do FTP at self selected cadence (approx 85 rpm) - For example i i do 200 watts at 60 rpm => Force = 3.5 vs 250 at 85 rpm => Force = 2.94. So would it be fine to say that my force dropped by 16%? (100*(1-2.94/3.5)=16%)

Any geeky advices about these fascinating numbers are more than welcome!

Ride on and see you in watopia
