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.

Btu Per Hour

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as Btu/h, for example 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h.
