### FAQ about Horsepower to Joule/Second Conversion

1 horsepower (metric) (hp) is equal to 735.4988 joule/second (J/s).

1hp = 735.4988J/s

The power P in joule/second (J/s) is equal to the power P in horsepower (hp) times 735.4988, that conversion formula:

P(J/s) = P(hp) × 735.4988

One Horsepower (metric) is equal to 735.4988 Joule/Second:

1hp = 1hp × 735.4988 = 735.4988J/s

One Joule/Second is equal to 0.00136 Horsepower:

1J/s = 1J/s × 0.00136 = 0.00136hp

P(J/s) = 5(hp) × 735.4988 = 3677.494J/s
