Enter the total horsepower and the RPM into the calculator to determine the total torque applied by the engine.

HP to Torque Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the torque from horsepower.

T = HP / (RPM / 5252)
  • Where T is the torque (pound-feet)
  • HP is the horsepower
  • RPM is the rotations per minute

To calculate torque from HP, divide the horsepower by the value of the RPM divided by 5252.

HP to Torque Defintion

Calculating torque from horsepower includes dividing the horsepower by the RPM generated by the engine.
