## How much HP does a cordless drill have?

A wide range of electric drills are available with more or less power (**one-half horsepower is** about average) and with various maximum speeds (most models top out at between twelve hundred and twenty-five hundred revolutions per minute).

## What is the formula to convert kVA to HP?

kVA to hp Conversion Formula:

KVA (kilo volt-amp) is the unit of apparent power and Hp is the unit of real power. Real power P_{(}_{HP}_{)} is equal to the 1.34 times of apparent power S_{(}_{kVA}_{)} in kVA and power factor. Hence for converting kVA to HP, **P _{(}_{HP}_{)} = 1.34 x S_{(}_{kVA}_{)} x pf.**
