Pferdestarke to horsepower (ps to hp)

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

To convert pferdestarke (metric horsepower) to horsepower, multiply by 0.9863 (approximately).

Examples

To convert PS to HP, you can use the following conversion factor:
1 PS = 0.9863 HP

You can find below five examples of converting PS to HP:

A car with an engine that has a power output of 200 PS would be equivalent to 197.26 HP (200 x 0.9863).

A motorcycle with an engine that has a power output of 100 PS would be equivalent to 98.63 HP (100 x 0.9863).

An electric motor with a power output of 50 PS would be equivalent to 49.31 HP (50 x 0.9863).

A boat with an engine that has a power output of 150 PS would be equivalent to 147.95 HP (150 x 0.9863).

A generator with a power output of 25 PS would be equivalent to 24.66 HP (25 x 0.9863).

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".

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.
