How to Convert Microwatts to Electric Horsepower

To convert a microwatt measurement to a electric horsepower measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One microwatt is equal to 1.3405E-9 electric horsepower, so use this simple formula to convert:

electric horsepower = microwatts × 1.3405E-9

The power in electric horsepower is equal to the microwatts multiplied by 1.3405E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 microwatts to electric horsepower using the formula above.
5 µW = (5 × 1.3405E-9) = 6.7024E-9 hp(E)

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


One microwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000,000 of a joule per second.

The microwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microwatts can be abbreviated as µW, for example 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.

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).
