## How many BTU is a metric ton?

12,000 BTU

Basically, 1 ton equals 12,000 BTU.

### Is mmbtu the same as BTU?

One million BTU is a measure of heat energy equal to 1,000,000 BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Million BTU can be abbreviated as MMBTU; for example, 1 million BTU can be written as 1 MMBTU.

#### How many BTUs are in a ton of natural gas?

BTU Conversion Guide

Electricity (MWH) | 3,410 BTUs/kilowatt hour |
---|---|

Natural Gas (cu. ft. 000’s) | 100,000 BTUs/therm. |

LPG/Propane (gal. 000’s) | 91,600 BTU/gallon |

Coal (short ton) | 24,580,000 BTUs/short ton |

Purchased Steam (BTUs) | 1,000 BTUs/pound |

**How many BTU are in a mmbtu?**

Btu↔MMBtu 1 MMBtu = 1000000 Btu.

**What ton is 24000 Btu?**

2-ton

There’s a complicated mathematical formula involved in converting the weight of that ice into energy, but in the end a “ton” of air conditioning capacity represents roughly 12,000 BTU per hour. So a 2-ton unit has 24,000 BTU/hr capacity and a 3-ton has 36,000 BTU/hr, and so on.

## What is Btu to Watts?

0.293 watts

1 BTU is equal to 0.293 watts 1 BTU is equal to 0.293W.

### What gas has highest BTU?

Some common heating fuels and their energy content

Energy Source | Unit | Energy Content (Btu) |
---|---|---|

Diesel Fuel | 1 Gallon | 139000 |

Gasoline | 1 Gallon | 124000 |

Natural Gas | 1 Cubic Foot (cu.ft.) | 950 – 1150 |

Heating Oil | 1 Gallon | 139000 |

#### What is the correct almost equivalent to 1 mmbtu natural gas?

In the British Imperial system, 1 MMBTU is conveniently equivalent to roughly 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas. Another unit frequently used is the therm, which is equivalent to 100,000 BTUs or roughly 100 cubic feet of gas. The price of natural gas is frequently cited per therm, per MMBTU, or per GJ.

**How do you convert BTU to SCF?**

Since both temperature and air pressure affect the energy content of a cubic foot of natural gas, the SCF is a way of standardizing. One SCF = 1020 BTUs. MCF – An MCF is 1,000 cubic feet. One MCF = 1,020,000 btu’s.

**How many BTU equals MBtu?**

MMBTU is 1 million BTUs, which are British thermal units and are a measurement of energy. The measurement of cubic feet of natural gas can be converted into BTU representation.

## What is the equation for BTU?

The BTU ( British Thermal Unit ) is universally accepted as a unit of heat transfer measurement. The BTU is defined as the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water 1°F. The equation for heat transfer to a liquid is as follows: Q=W(T2-T1)Cp. Q=Heat transfer per unit time (BTU/hr)

### What is BTU in the metric system unit?

The British thermal unit ( BTU or Btu) is a unit of heat; it is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. It is also part of the United States customary units. Its counterpart in the metric system is the calorie, which is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius.

#### How much energy BTU is?

The British Thermal Unit, or BTU, is an energy unit. It is approximately the energy needed to heat one pound of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit. 1 BTU = 1,055 joules, 252 calories, 0.293 watt-hour or the energy released by burning one match. 1 watt is approximately 3.412 BTU per hour.
