Horsepower has been around people’s lives since the late 18th century. It was first thought of by James Watt who was trying to compare the power of draft horses with steam engines. It now applies to all types of engines. Horsepower is used to express the rate at which mechanical energy is used up. In other words, it is a unit that expresses the rate at which work is done.
