# How many HP is a kWh?

## How many HP is a kWh?

Note: Kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a measure of energy and horsepower (hp) is a measure of power. Therefore you can only convert kilowatt-hour (kWh) directly to horsepower hour (hph) or kilowatts (kW) directly to horsepower (hp). 1 kW = 1.3404825737 hp. 1 kWh = 1.3404825737 hph.

## How many watts is 1 horsepower in the metric system?

The electrical equivalent of one horsepower is 746 watts in the International System of Units (SI), and the heat equivalent is 2,545 BTU (British Thermal Units) per hour. Another unit of power is the metric horsepower, which equals 4,500 kilogram-metres per minute (32,549 foot-pounds per minute), or 0.9863 horsepower.

What is the metric equivalent of HP?

The metric equivalent of a single horsepower, referred to as 1 PS, equals 4,500 kilogram-metres per minute, which rounds to 32,550 foot-pounds per minute, or 0.9863 of a horsepower.

How do you calculate power from horsepower?

The equation to calculate horsepower is simple: Horsepower = Torque x RPM / 5,252. You can use our horsepower calculator below to try it out yourself.

### How much horsepower does my car have calculator?

The formula for this approach is: horsepower = RPM (multiplied by) torque (divide by) 5,252. If the RPM of any vehicle motor is 5,600 RPM and torque is 350 foot-pounds, then all you need to put the values in the formula to calculate horsepower of the engine. (5,600 × 350) ÷ 5,252 = 373.19 HP.

### Is horsepower a metric unit?

Horsepower is also measured differently on the United States and metric systems. Metric horsepower (often abbreviated as PS or CV), uses metric units of measurement, meaning kilograms instead of pounds, and meters instead of feet. That means 1 metric horsepower is only equal to 98.6% of 1 U.S. horsepower.

How do you find the kW of a motor?

Multiply the motor voltage by the full-load current. The result is in watts. Divide watts by 1,000 to give kilowatts. For example, 230 volts x 20 amps = 4,600 watts; 4,600 watts divided by 1000 = 4.6 kilowatts.
