Enter the total cost ($) and the total horsepower (hp) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cost Per Hp. 

Cost Per Hp Formula



  • CPHP is the Cost Per Hp ($/hp)
  • TC is the total cost ($)
  • HP is the total horsepower (hp)

To calculate Cost Per Hp, divide the cost by the total horsepower gained.

How to Calculate Cost Per Hp?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cost Per Hp.

  1. First, determine the total cost ($). 
  2. Next, determine the total horsepower (hp). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CPHP = TC / HP.
  4. Finally, calculate the Cost Per Hp.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total cost ($) = 500

total horsepower (hp) = 30
