BTU to kJ conversion ►
One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.
The kilojoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as kJ; for example, 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.
British thermal units are a measure of heat energy. Specifically, one british thermal unit is equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. They are often used as a way to rate the energy heat producing appliances such furnaces, and to price heating fuels such as natural gas.
The british thermal unit is a US customary unit of energy. British thermal units can be abbreviated as BTU; for example, 1 british thermal unit can be written as 1 BTU.
How to convert Kilojoules to BTU
1 kJ = 0.94781712 BTU(IT)
1 BTU(IT) = 1.05505585262 kJ
The energy E(BTU) in BTUs is equal to 0.94781712 times the energy E(kJ) in kilojoules (kJ):
E(BTU) = E(kJ) / 1.05505585262 = 0.94781712 ⋅ E(kJ)
For example: when E=0.5kJ,
E(BTU) = 0.5kJ / 1.05505585262 = 0.473909 BTU
