It is also known as horsepowers. This unit is commonly used in the US unit system. Horsepower (550 Ft-Lbf/s) (HP) has a dimension of ML2T-3 where M is mass, L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit W by multiplying its value by a factor of 745.6998715.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
