Horsepower to weight ratio is used to calculate the engine power source. Here are a few Vehicles HorsePower to Weight Ratio calculation Examples which helps to find the ratio. These examples help you understand the topic better. The Power to weight ratio is used to measure the actual performance of any engine or power source.

Let us consider the problem: A vehicle has a power of 234 watts and weight as 15000 lbs

We can calculate the Power to Weight Ratio using the given formula.

Substituting the values in the formula,

Therefore,
Power weight = Power / Weight
=234/15000
0.0156.
**Hence, power to weight ratio is 0.0156**

Let us consider the problem: A vehicle has a power of 500 kilowatts and weight as 20000 gm

We can calculate the Power to Weight Ratio using the given formula.

Substituting the values in the formula,

Therefore,
Power weight = Power / Weight
=500/20000
=15.206934696.
**Hence, power to weight ratio is 15.206934696.**
