1 BTU = 1.055 kilojoules. (1 joule per second = 1 watt, or 1 joule = 1 watt-sec)

1 kWh = 3.6 megajoules (1000 x 3600 watt-sec = 3600 kilojoules)

3600000/1055 = 3412.3

So 1 kWh is the energy equivalent of 3412.3 BTUs.
The reverse conversion is that 1 BTU = 0.000293 KWh

*However, a kWh is energy used in work over time, while BTUs are energy content.

WattHours (Wh) or BTU's are measurements of Energy: which is how much energy is used (a certain amount). Conversely, watt and hp are measurements of power, which is how fast energy is being used (a certain rate).

Over the last century Wh, KWh, and MWh has replaced BTU in all non-heating uses of energy, except in scientific use (prefers the joule, J). In describing thermal energy use however, BTU (larger amounts of energy) and calories (smaller amounts of energy) and sometimes therms (very large amounts) are still used.

How do you convert kva to kwh?

There is no conversion factor between these two units of measurement, as they are measuring completely different quantities. It's a little like asking how you would convert ki

How do you convert kWh to mWh?

1 kwh is 1000mwh Answer: 1 kWh is one kilo Watt hour = 1,000 Watt-hours. 1 mWh is a milli Watt-hour = 1/1,000 Watt-hours. Therefore the answer is 1,000 x 1,000 or 1,000

How many btu per KWH?


How do you convert 665 kWh to calories?

  A watt is a J/s. So a kWh is 1000 (J * hr)/s. Since there are 3600 seconds in an hour:   1 kWh = 3,600,000 J. There are 4.18 J per calorie, so:   1 kWh = 861,000 c

Convert kWh into Nm3?

As I read the question, I think I know what 'kWh' is (are), but I'm  not so sure about 'Nm3' .    I'm assuming that 'kWh' means 'kilowatt-hour', a unit of energy  equ

Convert btu per month to KWH?

x BTUs / 3412.141633128 BTUs/KWH = KWH For example: -------------- If you burned 1,000,000 BTUs per month, then calculate the following: 1,000,000 BTUs / 3412.14163312

How do you convert Gas Kw to Kwh?

kW measures the power, which is how fast energy is supplied. Energy  in kilowatt hours is found by multiplying the kW by the hours.   So 3 kW of power run for 10 hours wo

How do you convert kwh month to mwh?

I'll assume the k and m mean kilo and mega. The proper abbreviations for these are kW·h and MW·h. Kilo- means 1000 and mega- means 1000000, so: x kW·h = x kW·h * (1 MW·

How do you convert kwh to amps?

You cannot. watt hours are a measure of energy (Joules); to compare amperes to energy you must know the voltage and the amount of time the current & voltage were present.
In Science

How to convert kwh to kvah?

To convert 'kwh' to 'kvah' you first need to measure the length of  time. You will then convert this amount to hours by dividing by  3,600. You will then divide this amount

How do you convert per kWh to dollars?

You cannot. kWh is a measure of energy. There are lots of people in the world who use energy but have no use for a dollar. Kwh and dollars measure different things and, acco

How do you convert horespower to kwh?

You can't! Horsepower is the Imperial unit of measurement for power, whereas a kilowatt hour is used to measure energy -two different quantities! Your question is equivalent t
