A horsepower(Hp) is a unit of measurement at the rate of power ie., the time taken to complete a work by a given force. The horsepower was originally explained by a Scottish engineer to compare the power of the steam engine to the horsepower. In the Whp to Horse Power (Hp) formula, the water horsepower entered is multiplied with the constant pressure to provide the Horsepower value. The pressure used here is kept as a constant value of 1.014336190238.
