  1. Hp to KW  

A horsepower may be defined as a unit of measurement of power (the rate at which work is accomplished). Mechanical horsepower, also known as imperial horsepower, is expressed as about 745.7 watts (550 ft·lbf/s), while metric horsepower is about 735.5 watts (75 kgf·m/s).

Boiler horsepower, albeit a small common measurement than either imperial or metric horsepower, is employed for rating steam boilers and is equal to 34.5 pounds of water evaporated per hour at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, or 9809.5 watts.

In addition, when rating electric motors 1 horsepower is equal to 746 watts.

1 Hp = 0.745699872 kilowatts

Kilowatt may be defined as a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). The base unit of the kilowatt is the watt, which was called after Scottish inventor James Watt.

As is consistent with SI units, the prefix kilo- means that a kilowatt equals one thousand watts or one thousand joules per second.
