## What is PWR?

The power to weight ratio is the ratio between a vehicle’s total weight and its power. The vehicle will accelerate faster if the PWR is higher. Motorbikes are faster than cars because of this. Although they may not be as powerful, motorbikes are lighter than most cars. This is because they have a higher power to weight ratio. PWR calculations are often used to predict vehicle speeds.

## Power to weight ratio formula

PWR (hp / lb.) = P / hp / WT/ lb
PWR (W / kg) = P (W / WT) (kg)
Where:
PWR = The power to weight ratio, (horsepower per pound, watts per kilogram).
P = power (horsepower / watts)
WT = Weight (pounds, kilograms)

## Conversions for the power to weight ratio formula

hp / lb = 1.64398682456 kW / kg
kW / kg = 0.6082773809745355 hp / lb  Article author
