How Many Amps Are in One Horsepower?


Horsepowers measure energy. This is a completely different concept than amps, which measure the rate at which electricity flows. Horsepowers can be converted into watts, not amps.

1. Multiply the horsepower by 746 watts. For example, an engine at two horsepower with 230 volts would be calculated as two horsepower times 746 watts, which equals 1492. 2. Divide
Horses are strong, amps have no strength at all unless they have volts riding along with them. The power of an amp is the current in amps times the voltage in volts. So 1 amp at 746
12 Amp would be 2 1/4 horsepower. Thanks for asking ChaCha.
For typical 115 volt single phase AC motors, a 1 Hp motor would require 16 amps and a 1-1/2 Hp motor would require 20 amps. A 230 volt 3 Hp motor would typically require 17 amps.
1 Additional Answer
The answer depends on what the voltage is. One horsepower equals 745.699872 watts. The formula is Power or P=VI, = Voltage x's current. This becomes Power divided by voltage equals current, or P/V = A. So, 120 volts, 745.699872 watts and 120 volts equals 6.214 amps.
