How to convert watts to electric horsepower (W to ehp)
The formula for converting watts to electric horsepower is: ehp = W × 0.001340482574. To calculate the watt value in electric horsepower first substitute the watt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt in electric horsepower we follow these steps:
ehp = W × 0.001340482574
ehp = 1 × 0.001340482574
ehp = 0.001340482574
In other words, 1 watt is equal to 0.001340482574 electric horsepower.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 watts to electric horsepower is:
- Understand the conversion formula: ehp = W × 0.001340482574
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for W so the formula becomes: ehp = 3 × 0.001340482574
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 0.001340482574 = 0.004021447722 ehp
In summary, 3 watts is equal to 0.004021447722 electric horsepower.
Converting electric horsepower to watts
In order to convert the other way around i.e. electric horsepower to watts, you would use the following formula: W = ehp × 746. To convert electric horsepower to watts first substitute the electric horsepower value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 electric horsepower in watts we follow these steps:
W = ehp × 746
W = 1 × 746
W = 746
Or in other words, 1 electric horsepower is equal to 746 watts.
