# Kilowatts to horsepower (kW to hp)

 Power (kilowatts - kW): Power (horsepower - hp):
 The calculator allows you to convert kilowatts to horsepower (kW to hp). Perform the reverse calculation: hp to kW
 1 kilowatt = 1.341022 horsepower (approximately equal to)1 horsepower = 0.745699872 kilowatt (approximately equal to)

To convert kilowatts to horsepower, multiply by 1.341022 (approximately).

## Examples

To convert kilowatts (kW) to horsepower (hp), you can use the conversion formula:
1 kW = 1.341022 hp

You can find below some examples:

Convert 10 kW to hp:
10 kW = 10 x 1.341022 = 13.41 hp
So, 10 kilowatts is equivalent to approximately 13.41 horsepower.

Convert 25 kW to hp:
25 kW = 25 x 1.341022 = 33.53 hp
So, 25 kilowatts is equivalent to approximately 33.53 horsepower.

Convert 50 kW to hp:
50 kW = 50 x 1.341022 hp/kW = 67.05 hp
So, 50 kilowatts is equivalent to approximately 67.05 horsepower.

Convert 75 kW to hp:
75 kW = 75 x 1.341022 = 100.58 hp
So, 75 kilowatts is equivalent to approximately 100.58 horsepower.

Convert 100 kW to hp:
100 kW = 100 x 1.341022 = 134.10 hp

The table shows the conversion of kilowatts (kW) to horsepower (hp). Each row of the table shows a conversion factor from kW to hp with the kW value rounded to two decimal places.

## Kilowatt

A kilowatt (kW) is a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). One kilowatt is equal to 1 000 watts or 1 kilojoule per second. "Kilo" is a prefix used in the International System of Units (SI) to denote a factor of 1 000. The prefix "kilo" is abbreviated with the letter "k" and is used to modify the base unit to which it is attached, such as meter, gram or watt.

The symbol for kilowatt (kW) is simply "kW". The "k" represents the prefix "kilo", which means 1 000, and the "W" represents the unit of power, the watt. So the kilowatt is a measure of power that is equal to 1 000 watts.

## 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.
