# How many kilowatts does a 1 hp motor used?

If the motor is fully loaded, it will provide output power of 1 HP = (1 X 0.746) kW = 0.746kW.

## What is engine kW?

Kilowatts are a metric unit used to measure power – in this case, the rate at which a car’s engine turns the energy stored in fossil fuels into movement. Usually, the more kilowatts an engine produces, the faster a car will accelerate.

## What is the power of a car engine?

In other words, power is the rate of completing work (or applying torque) in a given amount of time. Mathematically, horsepower equals torque multiplied by rpm. H = T x rpm/5252, where H is horsepower, T is pound-feet, rpm is how fast the engine is spinning, and 5252 is a constant that makes the units jibe.
