Enter the total horsepower (hp) and the total weight (lbs) into the HP to Weight Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the HP to Weight Ratio.

## HP to Weight Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the HP to Weight Ratio.

HPWR = HP / W

• Where HPWR is the HP to Weight Ratio (hp/lb)
• HP is the total horsepower (hp)
• W is the total weight (lbs)

## How to Calculate HP to Weight Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate HP to Weight Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total horsepower (hp).
• The total horsepower (hp) is given as: 600.
2. Next, determine the total weight (lbs).
• The total weight (lbs) is provided as: 2000.
3. Finally, calculate the HP to Weight Ratio using the equation above:

HPWR = HP / W

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

HPWR = 600 / 2000 = .30 (hp/lb)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total horsepower (hp) = 7000

total weight (lbs) = 3000

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

HPWR = HP / W = ?
