# Horsepower to pferdestarke (hp to ps)

 Power (Horsepower - hp): Power (Pferdestärke - ps):
 The calculator allows you to convert horsepower to pferdestarke (hp to ps). Perform the reverse calculation: ps to hp
 1 horsepower = 1.0139 pferdestarke (approximately equal to)1 pferdestarke = 0.9863 horsepower (approximately equal to)

To convert horsepower to pferdestarke (metric horsepower), multiply by 1.0139 (approximately).

## Examples

To convert horsepower (HP) to Pferdestarke (PS), you can use the following formula:
1 HP = 1.0139 PS

So, to convert HP to PS, you need to multiply the horsepower value by 1.0139. You can find below 5 examples of how to convert HP to PS:

Convert 10 HP to PS:
10 HP x 1.0139 = 10.139 PS

Convert 20 HP to PS:
20 HP x 1.0139 = 20.278 PS

Convert 30 HP to PS:
30 HP x 1.0139 = 30.417 PS

Convert 40 HP to PS:
40 HP x 1.0139 = 40.556 PS

Convert 50 HP to PS:
50 HP x 1.0139 = 50.695 PS

## Horsepower

Horsepower (hp) is a unit of power that is commonly used to express the power output of engines and motors. It was originally defined by the Scottish engineer James Watt in the late 18th century as the amount of power needed to lift 550 pounds (250 kilograms) at a rate of one foot (0.3 meters) per second. This unit of measurement was based on the power output of a typical draft horse, which Watt used as a comparison to the steam engines he was developing. Today, horsepower is defined as 746 watts, which is approximately equivalent to the power output of a small car engine. This definition was established by the International System of Units (SI), which is the modern metric system used throughout the world. However, horsepower is still widely used in the United States and other countries that have not fully adopted the SI system.

The symbol for horsepower is "hp". There are many different types of horsepower measurements. The two most common types both measure electric horsepower: imperial horsepower (also called mechanical horsepower) and metric horsepower.

## Pferdestärke

Pferdestärke (abbreviated as PS) is a metric unit of power, commonly used to measure the power output of engines, particularly those used in automobiles. One Pferdestärke is defined as 735.49875 watts, which is approximately equivalent to 0.9863 horsepower. Pferdestärke is often used interchangeably with the metric horsepower (hp), which is another unit of power. While they are not exactly equivalent, one PS is roughly equal to 0.98 hp.

Metric horsepower and "pferdestärke" (often abbreviated as "PS") are actually equivalent units of power. They are both based on the same conversion factor, which is 1 kilowatt (kW) = 1.36 metric horsepower (PS) = 1.36 pferdestärke (PS).

The symbol for Pferdestärke is "PS".
