Also know as: Where does 37284993579113511/50000000000000 come from?
1 hp = 33000 ftlbf/min by definition
1 min = 60 s
1 foot = 3048/10000 (0.3048) meter
1 lb = 45359237/100000000 (0.45359237) kg
1 g = 196133/20000 (9.80665) m/s²
therefore:
1 hp = =
watt
Exact results
1 hp = 37284993579113511/50000000000000 watt exactly (irreducible fraction) or
1 hp = 745.69987158227022 watt exactly (decimal)
