### FAQ about Joule/Second to Horsepower Conversion

1 joule/second (J/s) is equal to 0.00136 horsepower (hp).

1J/s = 0.00136hp

The power P in horsepower (hp) is equal to the power P in joule/second (J/s) times 0.00136, that conversion formula:

P(hp) = P(J/s) × 0.00136

One Joule/Second is equal to 0.00136 Horsepower:

1J/s = 1J/s × 0.00136 = 0.00136hp

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

1hp = 1hp × 735.4988 = 735.4988J/s

P(hp) = 5(J/s) × 0.00136 = 0.0068hp
