7.460000e2 W
electric_horsepower
unit of power defined in the International System of Units as exactly 746 W; generally used for power used by electrical machines
7.46043e2 W
water_horsepower
unit of power used in the U.S. primarily in rating pumps; calculated as pump capacity Q (gallons per minute) times pump pressure ("head") of P (feet of head), divided by 3956 water horsepower; the calculation assumes water density is 8 1/3 pounds per U.S. gallon, which is not exact.

lg(re 1 W)
BW
unit of power in decibel scale, referenced to 1 watt; the power in bel-watts is equal to 100 times the base 10 logarithm of the power in watts (making decibel-watt, the more common term, 10 times the base 10 log of the power in watts)
lg(re 1 mW)
Bm
unit of power in decibel scale, referenced to 1 milliwatt; the power in bel-milliwatts is equal to 100 times the base 10 logarithm of the power in milliwatts (making decibel-milliwatt, the more common term, 10 times the base 10 log of the power in watts)
1.55e-1 K.m^2/W
clo
unit of thermal resistance used in describing the insulating value of clothing; the amount of thermal resistance needed to maintain in comfort a resting subject in a normally ventilated room (air movement 10 cm/sec) at a temperature of 20 degrees C and a humidity less than 50%
