## 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

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

or

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

1 Horsepower = 33,000 lb. ft/min
