# Convert Btu Per Hour to Mechanical Horsepower

Enter the power in btu per hour below to get the value converted to mechanical horsepower.

Results in Mechanical Horsepower: 1 Btu/h = 0.000393 hp(I)

## How to Convert Btu Per Hour to Mechanical Horsepower

To convert a btu per hour measurement to a mechanical horsepower measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One btu per hour is equal to 0.000393 mechanical horsepower, so use this simple formula to convert:

mechanical horsepower = btu per hour × 0.000393

The power in mechanical horsepower is equal to the btu per hour multiplied by 0.000393.

For example, here's how to convert 5 btu per hour to mechanical horsepower using the formula above.
5 Btu/h = (5 × 0.000393) = 0.001965 hp(I)

Btu per hour and mechanical horsepower are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
