horsepower (cheval-vapeur)
 Symbol: cv, HP Category: Power (Heat flow) SI Equivalent: 735.499 W Dimension: ML2T-3 Notes Unit of power introduced by James Watt in 1782. It is equal to the power needed to raise 528 ft3 of pure water by 1 meter in 1 minute. The final conversion factor was adopted in 1850 as: 1 HP (cheval-vapeur) = 75 kgf-m/s
