One horse has approximately how many horsepower?


15 horsepower

The power output of your car’s engine can be measured in a variety of different ways, but the most common is in horsepower. Horsepower is a unit of measurement for power, which is the rate at which work is done. Does one horsepower equal one horse? Not quite. It’s a common misconception that one horsepower is equal to the peak power production of a horse, which is capable of a maximum of around 14.9 horsepower. By comparison, a human being is capable of approximately five horsepower at peak power production.
