How to Convert Btu Per Hour to Mechanical Horsepower Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Convert btu per hour to mechanical horsepower with this simple formula:

mechanical horsepower = btu per hour × 0.000393

Converting a btu per hour power measurement to a mechanical horsepower measurement involves multiplying your power by the conversion ratio to find the result. A btu per hour is equal to 0.000393 mechanical horsepower, so to convert simply multiply by 0.000393.

For example:
5 Btu/h = (5 × 0.000393) = 0.001965 hp(I)

Btu per hour and mechanical horsepower are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators.
