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).
