To convert from horsepower (metric) to British thermal units per second (BTU/s), you can use the following conversion factors:

1 Horsepower (metric) is equivalent to approximately 745.7 Watts. 1 Watt is equivalent to approximately 0.000947817 BTU/s.

So, to convert 1 Horsepower (metric) to BTU/s:

$1 \text{ Horsepower (metric)} = 745.7 \text{ Watts}$

$745.7 \text{ Watts} \times 0.000947817 \text{ BTU/s per Watt} \approx 0.7068 \text{ BTU/s}$

So, 1 Horsepower (metric) is approximately 0.7068 BTU/s.

A typical small car engine might have around 100 Horsepower (metric). Converting this to BTU/s: $100 \text{ HP} \times 0.7068 \text{ BTU/s per HP} = 70.68 \text{ BTU/s}$

A lawn mower might have an engine rated at around 5 Horsepower (metric). Converting this to BTU/s: $5 \text{ HP} \times 0.7068 \text{ BTU/s per HP} = 3.534 \text{ BTU/s}$

A large marine engine might be rated at 5000 Horsepower (metric). Converting this to BTU/s: $5000 \text{ HP} \times 0.7068 \text{ BTU/s per HP} = 3534 \text{ BTU/s}$

By using these conversions, you can get an idea of the power output in another unit (BTU/s) that's often used in heating and cooling applications, illustrating the versatility and different perspectives on power.

See below section for step by step unit conversion with formulas and explanations. Please refer to the table below for a list of all the British thermal units per second to other unit conversions.

You're referring to the metric unit of measurement for power!

In the metric system, a unit called "horsepower" or "HP" (short for "Pferdestärke", German for "horse strength") is used to express power. However, it's not directly equivalent to the imperial unit of horsepower.

1 metric horsepower (or PS) is defined as 735.5 watts or 0.9869 imperial horsepower. This means that if you see a rating in metric horsepower, you can convert it to watts by multiplying by 735.5.

In everyday applications, especially in European countries, motor power is often measured and specified in kilowatts (kW) or metric horsepower (PS).

British Thermal Units (BTUs) are a unit of energy, and when measured over time, they can be expressed in various ways to indicate different rates of energy transfer. British thermal units per second (or BTU/s, also denoted as Btu/s) is a measure of the rate at which heat or energy is being transferred.

It's essentially an expression of how quickly one BTU unit of energy is being used up or transferred over a one-second period. This unit is commonly used in discussions about power and rates of energy consumption or production, particularly when dealing with processes that involve significant amounts of energy, such as industrial operations, heating systems, and even some types of engines.

To put this into perspective, consider that 1 watt (a standard unit of electrical power) is equivalent to 3.412 BTU/s. Thus, a device or process consuming 100 watts would be using approximately 341.2 BTUs per second.
