Horsepower (hp) is a unit in the English system used to express the rate at which mechanical energy is expended.
While watts is the SI unit of power equivalent to one joule per second.
Formula to convert W to hp.
To convert these two units, we need to know how they are related.
We say that 1 horsepower is equivalent to 746 watts.
Therefore, to convert W to hp, we divide the W value by 746.
Horsepower = Watts ÷ 746
Convert 200,000 watts to horsepower.
= 200,000 ÷ 746
= 268 Horsepower.
