# Convert Kilocalories Per Hour to Mechanical Horsepower

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

Results in Mechanical Horsepower:
1 kcal/h = 0.001559 hp(I)

## How to Convert Kilocalories Per Hour to Mechanical Horsepower

To convert a kilocalorie per hour measurement to a mechanical horsepower measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One kilocalorie per hour is equal to 0.001559 mechanical horsepower, so use this simple formula to convert:

mechanical horsepower = kilocalories per hour × 0.001559

The power in mechanical horsepower is equal to the kilocalories per hour multiplied by 0.001559.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilocalories per hour to mechanical horsepower using the formula above.
5 kcal/h = (5 × 0.001559) = 0.007793 hp(I)

Kilocalories per hour and mechanical 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.

## Mechanical Horsepower

Mechanical horsepower is often used to measure the output of engines and motors in North America. One mechanical horsepower is equal to 745.69987158227022 watts.

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