In this article, we’ll learn the conversion from Hp(Horsepower) to W(Watt) by using two methods, using online converter and using the conversion formula. This can be done for different types of horsepower. So you can convert as per your choice and convenience.
What is Horsepower?
Horsepower (hp) is a measuring unit of power. Symbol for a horsepower (metric) is ‘hp‘. There are two standard horsepower, imperial horsepower and metric horsepower. imperial horsepower is 745.7 watts, and metric horsepower is 735.5 watts.
What is Watts?
Watt is a measuring unit of power in the international standard system unit. the symbol of watts is ‘W‘. Watt is equivalent to One joule per second. Watt defines the ‘radiation of energy per second‘. One watt is equal to 0.0013596216 hp (metric).
How do we convert horsepower to watts?
To convert horsepower to a watt measurement, use one of the formulas that we listed below:
Using Online Converter :
To further proceed with this method, Enter the power in horsepower below to get the value converted to watts. Then you’ll see the results being display in the box.
Using The Formula:
Here we’re using different types of horsepower for your choice.
Mechanical Horsepower to Watts
Here the formula given to convert mechanical horsepower to watts:
watts = hp(I) × 745.699872
Since, 1 mechanical horsepower is equal to 745.699872 watts, the formula to find watts is to multiply mechanical horsepower by 745.699872.
Let’s take an example, here’s how to convert 3 mechanical horsepower to watts using the formula.
3 hp(I) = (3 × 745.699872) = 2237.099616 W
Electric Horsepower to Watts
Here is the formula given to convert electric horsepower to watts
watts = hp(E) × 746
Since, 1 electric horsepower is equal to 746 watts, the formula to find watts is to multiply electric horsepower by 746.
For an example, here’s how to convert 5 electric horsepower to watts using the formula.
6 hp(E) = (6 × 746) = 4476 W
Metric Horsepower to Watts
Formula given to convert metric horsepower to watts:
watts = hp(M) × 735.49875
Since, 1 metric horsepower is equal to 735.49875 watts, the formula to find watts is to multiply metric horsepower by 735.49875.
Have a look at the example, here’s how to convert 5 metric horsepower to watts using the formula.
4 hp(M) = (4 × 735.49875) = 2941.995 W
Boiler Horsepower to Watts
We can use formula given below to convert boiler horsepower to watts:
watts = hp(S) × 9,809.5
Since, 1 boiler horsepower is equal to 9,809.5 watts, the formula to find watts is to multiply boiler horsepower by 9,809.5.
For example, how to convert 5 boiler horsepower to watts using the formula.
9 hp(S) = (9 × 9,809.5) = 88285.5 W
