What are the units of bhp?
The units are horse-power. One horse-power = 550 ft.lbs/sec B.H.P. stands for brake horse-power. The word brake does not affect the units, it simply specifies the way in which the horse-power was measured. This in turn means that the horse-power was measured rather than calculated or estimated.
