Water Horsepower formula

\(\large{ WHP = \frac{ Q \; h_t }{3960} }\) 
 Units English Metric
\(\large{ WHP }\) = water horsepower \(\large{\frac{lbf-ft}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{Btu}{s}}\)
\(\large{ Q }\) = flow rate discharge \(\large{\frac{ft^3}{sec}}\) \(\large{\frac{m^3}{s}}\)
\(\large{ h_t }\) = total head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
