Power conversion

British System:
 746W = 1 H.P.
 1000W (1 kW) = (1000 / 746) H.P. = 1.34 H.P.

Metric System:
 735.5W = 1 H.P.
 1000W (1kW) = (1000/735.5) H.P. = 1.36 H.P.

Speed conversion

Speed is expressed in length per time. However there are some special units:



Special names

Some old units in the metric system use old names that do not have the power prefixes. Those are:

Power prefixes used within the units of the metric system

No converter is needed to convert among the units of the metric system. You just multiply or divide by a factor which is given by the power prefix.
Example: 1km (kilometer) = 103 m (meter)= 1000m (meter)
