Horsepower (hp), power

The horsepower (hp) is the name of several non-metric units of power. In scientific discourse the term "horsepower" is rarely used because of the various definitions and the existence of an SI unit for power, the watt (W). However, the idea of horsepower persists as a legacy term in many languages, particularly in the automotive industry for listing the maximum rate of power application of internal-combustion engines.
