505 kW to HP

Welcome to 505 kW to hp, the conversion of 505 kilowatts to horsepower.

Here we show you how to change the power to mechanical hp, metric hp, electric hp and boiler hp.

For these units we use the symbols hp(I), hp(M), hp(E), and hp(S), respectively.

505 kW in hp(E) is not exactly the same in the US and Europe. That’s why you can find two conversions to electric hp below.

Observe that the result of 505 kW to boiler hp can be expressed as either bhp or hp(S).

Cars in the US have their power described in mechanical hp, aka imperial hp (converter default). In Europe, metric hp are mainly used for the same purpose.



Note that you may overwrite 505 with another value, then make your choice in the drop-down menu, or proceed with the preselect unit.
