## Watts to horsepower conversion

### Watts to hp Conversion

This is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in watts (W) to different types of horsepower (hp). It is programmed with a single text field and two control buttons that execute different functions of the converter. First, enter the value in watts in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to initiate the conversion from watts to mechanical, electrical and metric horsepower. The ‘Reset’ button is used to erase all data of the previous conversions from the converter. It enhances the flexibility of the Watts to hp converter as it can only perform one conversion at a time.

##### Example

Convert 300 Watts to hp

##### Solution

The first procedure is to enter the value in watts (300) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to get the result in horsepower. It is displayed as;

Result in mechanical horsepower: 0.40230662665 hp (I)

Result in electrical horsepower: 0.40214477212 hp (E)

Result in metric horsepower: 0.40788648519 hp (M)

Use the same procedure when converting new values in watts to get the corresponding results in horsepower.

#### How to convert watts to hp?

##### Watts to hydraulic/ mechanic horsepower

1 hp (I) = 745.699872 W

There are 745.699872 watts in one mechanic or hydraulic horsepower.

Therefore;

We divide the power in watts by 745.699872 to determine the power conversion in mechanical horsepower.

##### Watts to electrical horsepower

1 hp (E) = 746 W

There are 746 watts in one electrical horsepower.

P (hp) = P (W) / 746

The electrical horsepower is determined by dividing the power in watts by 746.

##### Watts to metric horsepower

1 hp (M) = 735.49875 W

There are 735.49875 watts in one mechanical horsepower.

Therefore;

The power in metric horsepower is determined by dividing the power in watts by 735.49875.

The Watts to horsepower conversion table is used to determine the conversion of common values from watts to themechanic, electric and metric horsepower.
