@Drunk Pantless Uncle, well by that guys calculation, it should be 2/3 horse power. But it can vary greatly on the age and strength of each individual. Hell a quick search show that a normal horse can produce 15 hp and humans can produce 5 hp. We should just stop using the unit and even the EU has declared the unit should only be used as a comparison or reference

@Drunk Pantless Uncle, I believe a full grown house actually has 15 hp at top output on average. generally speaking the idea is that a horse has 1 hp of sustainable energy although his equation was just to simply up the power by an arbitrary number he came up with. the strangest thing to think about is that hp on a car isn't actually how powerful a car is at a given moment but instead over an amount of time so it really tells you the workload ability of a car vs how quickly you may or may not be able to accelerate
What's funny is the guy that first calculated the horsepower, didn't use a horse. He used a pony and scaled up because he thought s pony was like 2/3 of a horse
