What is power?

We may describe power as the rate at which work is done, or the amount of work completed in a given amount of time. Watt (W), or joules per second (J/s), is the SI unit of power. Horsepower (hp), which is roughly equivalent to 745.7 watts, is often used to describe the power of motor vehicles and other devices.

Horsepower (HP)

Horsepower is an imperial unit of power of an engine. It is defined as the work done per unit time. The Horsepower formula is given as

\(\begin{array}{l}HP = \frac{\left (Torque\times Speed \right)}{5252}\end{array} \)


\(\begin{array}{l}HP = Weight \times (\frac{Velocity}{234})^{2}\end{array} \)

1 Horsepower = 33,000 lb. ft/min
