Thumbs up conversion kw to bhp

Converting kW to bhp
1 bhp is equal to 0.746 kW
1 kW is equal to 1.34 bhp.
So to convert a figure in bhp to kW you multiply by 0.746

e.g.. 150 bhp = (150 * 0.746) = 111.9 kW.

And to convert kW to bhp you multiply by 1.34

e.g.. 130 kW = (130 * 1.34) = 174.2 bhp.

might be useful for some of you.

Cheers.

But if your math challenged (like me :s1 ) you can download Master Convertor and "quickly and easily convert most units of measurement". Click HERE It's only about 1.6mb. (It's shareware)

Re: conversion kw to bhp

kw to hp you times by 1.34
hp to kw you divide by 1.34

very simple

Nm to ft/lbs you divide by 1.39
ft/lbs to Nm you times by 1.39

cc to cubic inch you divide by 2.54 (cubed) - or divide by 2.54 three times

cubic inch to cc you times by 2.54 (cubed)

so 350 x 2.54 x 2.54 x 2.54 = somewhere around 5700
