Imperial to Metric Conversion

Horse Power (HP) = 0.746 kW Kilowatts = btu/min x 0.01757 Meters (m) = ft x 0.3048 Newton-meters (Nm) = lb-ft x 1.356 Millimeters (mm) = in x 25.4 Newton = lb force x 4.448 Litres (L) = gal x 3.785 (U.S. gallon) Grams/kilowatt-hr = lb/bhp-hr x 608.28 Litres (L) = gal x 4.54 (Imperial gallon) Litres/seconds (L/sec) = ft min x 0.472 Litres (L) = in x 0.016387 Electrical kva = Generator output 0.8 Kilograms (kg) = lb x 0.4536 Celsius = (deg. F - 32) x 0.556 Kilowatts (kW) = bhp x 0.7457
