Enter the power in kilocalories per hour below to get the value converted to electric horsepower.

Results in Electric Horsepower: 1 kcal/h = 0.001558 hp(E)

How to Convert Kilocalories Per Hour to Electric Horsepower

To convert a kilocalorie per hour measurement to an electric horsepower measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie per hour is equal to 0.001558 electric horsepower, so use this simple formula to convert:

electric horsepower = kilocalories per hour × 0.001558

The power in electric horsepower is equal to the kilocalories per hour multiplied by 0.001558.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories per hour to electric horsepower using the formula above.
5 kcal/h = (5 × 0.001558) = 0.00779 hp(E)

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

Kilocalories Per Hour

One kilocalorie per hour is equal to one kilocalorie, or 1,000 times the energy needed to heat one gram of water 1 °C, for one hour.

Kilocalories per hour can be abbreviated as kcal/h, for example 1 kilocalorie per hour can be written as 1 kcal/h.

Electric Horsepower

Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines in the US. One electric horsepower is equal to exactly 746 watts.

The electric horsepower is a US customary and imperial unit of power. Electric horsepower can be abbreviated as hp(E), for example 1 electric horsepower can be written as 1 hp(E).
