**This calculator uses the precise formula HP = BHP × 0.9863 to convert Brake Horsepower to Horsepower, 1000 BHP is equals to 986.30 HP.**

Both units measure **power**, but they are used in different contexts. **BHP **is often used in the **automotive industry** to denote the power output of an engine without accounting for losses due to friction and other factors, while **HP** typically refers to the usable power at the wheels after these losses have been considered.

## BHP to HP Conversion Formula

The conversion formula between BHP and HP can be expressed as:

**BHP = HP × 1.01387**

Conversely, to find HP from BHP:

**HP = BHP × 0.9863**

If an engine has a Brake Horsepower** (BHP) of 150**.

*To convert it to Horsepower (HP):*

**HP = 150 BHP × 0.9863** **HP = 147.945**

An engine with **150 BHP** would have an output of approximately **147.945 HP **at the wheels.

## How to Convert BHP to HP?

To convert **Brake Horsepower** to **Horsepower**, you can use the formula:

**HP = BHP × 0.9863**

**Identify the BHP value**: Let’s say you have an engine rated at**120 BHP**.**Use the conversion factor**: Multiply the BHP value by**0.9863**.**Perform the calculation**:**HP = 120 × 0.9863 = 118.356 HP**

- HP = 10 × 0.9863 =
**9.863 HP** - HP = 360 × 0.9863 =
**354.72 HP** - HP = 1000 × 0.9863 =
**986.32 HP** - HP = 1200 × 0.9863 =
**1183.58 HP**

For an engine with a rating of **200 BHP**:

**HP = 200 × 0.9863 = 197.26 HP**

A **200 BHP engine** translates to approximately **197.26 HP**.

## Are hp and BHP the Same?

No, **hp (Horsepower)** and **BHP (Brake Horsepower)** are not the same. They are closely related, but they measure slightly different aspects of power output.

**Brake Horsepower (BHP)** is the measure of the actual power produced by an engine at the crankshaft, before any power losses in the drivetrain. It represents the engine’s true power output.

**Horsepower (HP)**, on the other hand, is the measure of the power delivered at the wheels or output shaft, after accounting for the power losses in the drivetrain (transmission, differentials, etc.). HP is always lower than BHP due to these power losses.
