## bhp to kw

In the one horsepower, the electronic equivalent is 74+6 watts in the international system of the units. The unit horsepower is the output shaft of the engine, turbines and any other machines like this. The horsepower is larger for the reciprocating engines. The pressure of the cylinders also determines the value of this.

A kilowatt is a unit of the energy, and the value of this unit of energy is equal to the 3.6 mega Joule. When this energy is transmitted and if it is used at the constant rate in the period of the time, there are two terms of this unit which are power and energy mainly we are confused between both these terms. This unit is primarily used for the billing unit of the energy which is delivered to the consumers by the electric utilities.
