# How many tons is 36000 btu?

A ton is a measure of mass. A BTU is a measure of energy. There is no way to compare them. Possible meaning: 1 ton of cooling is often used to describe 12,000 BTU pe…r hour, so 36,000 BTU/h is equal to 3 tons of cooling.

# BTUS to tons?

12,000 BTU/h is referred to as a ton in most North American air conditioning applications. A BTU, short for British Thermal Unit, is a basic measure of thermal (heat) energy. …One BTU is the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit, measured at its heaviest point. In other words, if you placed 16 ounces of water at 59Â°F into a stovetop pan and turned on the gas burner, it would take one BTU to raise the temperature of the water to 60Â°F. As more BTU's continue to flow from the gas flame, the water will eventually reach the boiling point of 212Â°F. A BTU is also the equivalent of 252 heat calories, not to be confused with the kilo-calories of food, and of approximately a third of a watt of electrical power. When speaking of cooling power, the BTU also works in reverse. The air-cooling power of an air conditioning system refers to the amount of thermal energy removed from an area. Hence a 65,000 BTU heater and a 65,000 BTU air conditioner are of roughly the same capacity and size. The higher the BTU output, the more powerful the heating or cooling system. Strangely enough, the British Thermal Unit is rarely used in Great Britain anymore, where it is considered a non-metric measurement. Even in countries which use the BTU as a standard measurement, there is some disagreement over the formula used to derive it. The thermal energy needed to raise water one degree Fahrenheit can depend on the original temperature and the method used for heating. Therefore, it is possible to get several different definitions of a BTU from different sources. This rarely has a palpable effect on consumer product information, however. Most heating and cooling systems produce thousands of BTU's, almost rendering the measurement of one BTU pointless. One is more likely to encounter smaller BTU figures during scientific experiments, where the slightest change in thermal energy may need to be calculated in terms of calories. When dealing with central air conditioning units and commercial pizza ovens, however, the BTU numbers can easily reach the hundreds of thousands. A unit of measure called the MMBTU is the equivalent of a million BTU's. Few man-made objects can generate this level of thermal energy, however. When shopping for heating or cooling systems, keep in mind that even the smallest window-mounted air conditioner or space heater can produce thousands of BTU's. The BTU numbers should primarily be used as a comparison between systems. Larger and more expensive systems should provide significantly higher BTU's than smaller ones. When deciding between similarly priced units, compare the BTU's for a better gauge of performance. Conversions One BTU is approximately: 1054-1060 joules 252-253 cal (calories, small) 0.252-0.253 kcal (kilocalories) 778-782 ftÂ·lbf (foot-pounds-force) Other conversions: 013fIn natural gas, by convention 1 MM Btu (1 million Btu, sometimes written "mm BTU") = 1.054615 GJ. Conversely, 1 gigajoule is equivalent to 26.8 m3 of natural gas at defined temperature and pressure. Associated units The BTU per hour (BTU/h) is the unit of power most commonly associated with the BTU. 1 watt is approximately 3.4 BTU/h [1] 1000 BTU/h is approximately 293 W 1 horsepower is approximately 2540 BTU/h 12,000 BTU/h is referred to as a ton in most North American air conditioning applications. A unit called the quad (short for quadrillion) is defined as 1015 BTU, which is about 1.055Ă—1018 joules, and the therm is defined in the country-region United States and European Union as 100,000 BTU -but the place country-region U.S. uses the BTU59 Â°F whilst the EU uses the BTUIT. The BTU should not be confused with the Board of Trade Unit (B.O.T.U.), which is a much larger quantity of energy.

# How many BTU per hour in a kilowatt?

1 kW is equal to 3412.3 BTU/hour. This is using the values of 1.055 kJ per BTU and 3600 kJ/kWh. Other sources confusingly list the exact conversion of 1 kWh as 3412.14163 BTU …3412.1416416 BTU 3412.1414799 BTU (One source uses both 3412 and 3413 in linked pages.)

# What does BTU means and 6000 btu equals how many ton?

BTU is British Thermal Unit, a a measure of energy. Leaving aside Einstein's equation, a BTU cannot be converted directly into an equivalent mass.

# How many BTU per ton of wood pellets?

Within reason all woods have a potential BTU value of 8000 BTU's per pound. Oak, Ash, Balsa and Pine all have the same potential. I am sure there are some exotic woods that mi…ght violate this rule but for the sake of this question 8000 BTU/Pd will do nicely. The term potential is a theoretical maximum yield and, in a practical sense, can not be achieved except in the laboratory. The key is in the weight not the species. Wood, when alive and green, has approximately 50% moisture content. Obviously, water will inhibit the conversion to heat so actual, aka possible, BTU's available to heat a home will drop according to the moisture content. When the moisture content drops to less than 20% the available BTU's will be approximately 6000 BTU's per pound. Seldom, if ever, will the average homeowner achieve greater than this as they have no control of moisture content of whatever they are burning. Some wood pellets will perform a little better than raw wood as they have a binder that holds the pellets together like paraffin or other organic binders. Not all pellets use a binder rather they rely on tremendous forming pressure to maintain their shape during transport and handling.
