Horsepower : The horsepower (symbol: hp) is the name of several units of measurement of power, the rate at which work is done. A metric horsepower is defined as the power to raise a mass of 75kilograms against the earth's gravitational force over a distance of one meter in one second. One horsepower (metric) is equal to 735.5 W. In additional, the horsepower used for electrical machines is defined as exactly 746 W.

Watt : The watt is a unit for power, is one of SI Units. Its name is in honor of the Scottish engineer James Watt, the eighteenth-century developer of the steam engine. The unit symbol for watt is W, defined as one joule per second, measures the rate of energy conversion or transfer.
