Torque is the product of a force and the distance from a pivot point about which an object rotates.

Horsepower is a measure of work done over time.

To convert torque to horsepower you must specify the rate of revolution of an engine.

Multiply torque in foot-pounds by the rotational speed of the engine.

For  example, if an engine produces 7 foot-pounds of torque at 1,750 revolutions per  minute (rpm), then 7 x 1,750 = 12,250 foot-pounds/minute.

Divide the answer in step 1 by 5,252 foot-pounds/horsepower-minute. In the  example, 12,250/5,252 = 2.33 horsepower.
