## How to Convert Kilocalories Per Hour to Mechanical Horsepower Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Convert kilocalories per hour to mechanical horsepower with this simple formula:

mechanical horsepower = kilocalories per hour × 0.001559

Converting a kilocalories per hour power measurement to a mechanical horsepower measurement involves multiplying your power by the conversion ratio to find the result. A kilocalories per hour is equal to 0.001559 mechanical horsepower, so to convert simply multiply by 0.001559.

For example:
5 kcal/h = (5 × 0.001559) = 0.007793 hp(I)

Kilocalories per hour and mechanical horsepower are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. A kilocalories per hour is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as kcal/h, for example 1 kcal/h. A mechanical horsepower is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as hp(I), for example 1 hp(I).

Mechanical horsepower is often used to measure the output of engines and motors in North America and is equal to 745.69987158227022 watts, or joules per second. Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines, and is equal to exactly 746 watts.
