Answer 1 kW is 3,413 BTUs. Therefore, 1500 Watts = 1.5 kW and 1.5 kW x 3413 BTU/kW = 3 413 * 1.5 = 5 119.5 BTUs per hr for a 1500 Watt heater what is the electric cost/
Air conditioners are rated in three ways, by B.T.U.'s, tons of refrigeration, or by horsepower. One ton of refrigeration removes the amount of heat needed to melt one ton of ice in 24 hours. One ton of refrigeration can remove 12,000 B.T.U.'s of heat in one hour. The B.T.U. is the amount of heat nee…ded to raise 1 lb. of pure water 1 deg F. (MORE)
1 gallon for #1 Kerosene produces 135,000 BTUs. #1 Kerosene is closely related to #1 Diesel and JP8 (Jet Fuel) - they differ chiefly in additives. Likewise, #2 Kerosene, Diesel #2, and Furnace Oil are similar to one another. #2 oils have higher sulfur content, which leads to more eye and lung …irritation from the emissions. However, they are also comprised of longer hydrocarbon chains, and therefore weigh more per gallon and also have somewhat higher energy content. (MORE)
You need 100W per square meter. 100W equals around 341.3BTU. 1 square meter are around 10.7 square feet. You therefore need around 32 BTU per square foot.
There are 3412.14 btu per kilowatt of electricity. That isn't muchto converting it, if a local table is used.

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 o…ther 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  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 1.055Ã1018 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. (MORE)
Coal has an energy value of 24 Megajoules/kg, which is the same as 6.67 kwh/kg. However a coal fired power plant will only have an efficiency of about 30 per cent so this reduces to 2.0 kwh/kg. Now when you say 1 ton, do you mean 2240 lb, 2000 lb, or 1000 kg (metric ton) ? I will assume 1000kg as… it makes the arithmetic easier, in fact 2.0 kwh/kg comes to 2000 kwh/metric ton. Note that kilowatt is a power, kilowatthour (kwh) is an amount of energy, which is what you wanted. If you want it for a short ton of 2000 lb, this will become 1814 kwh, and for a ton of 2240 lb it will be 2032 kwh (MORE)
Anthracite . Anthracite is coal with the highest carbon content, between 86 and 98 percent, and a heat value of nearly 15,000 BTUs-per-pound. Most frequently associated with home heating, anthracite is a very small segment of the U.S. coal market. There are 7.3 billion tons of anthracite reserves… in the United States, found mostly in 11 northeastern counties in Pennsylvania.. Bituminous . The most plentiful form of coal in the United States, bituminous coal is used primarily to generate electricity and make coke for the steel industry. The fastest growing market for coal, though still a small one, is supplying heat for industrial processes. Bituminous coal has a carbon content ranging from 45 to 86 percent carbon and a heat value of 10,500 to 15,500 BTUs-per-pound.. Subbituminous . Ranking below bituminous is subbituminous coal with 35-45 percent carbon content and a heat value between 8,300 and 13,000 BTUs-per-pound. Reserves are located mainly in a half-dozen Western states and Alaska. Although its heat value is lower, this coal generally has a lower sulfur content than other types, which makes it attractive for use because it is cleaner burning.. Lignite . Lignite is a geologically young coal which has the lowest carbon content, 25-35 percent, and a heat value ranging between 4,000 and 8,300 BTUs-per-pound. Sometimes called brown coal, it is mainly used for electric power generation. (MORE)
600 spf A good general rule of thumb is 20 BTU per square foot. So, a 200 sf room would require a 4000 BTU ac unit. If you use 20btu per square foot to determine the required tonnage, you will be under sizing your system. For example 20btux1500sf=30000btu. There are 12000 btu per ton so you …are using a 2.5 ton system to cool 1500 sf. On a hot summer day your electric meter will be spinning like a tilt-a-whirl at the county fair. Your air conditioner is designed to run at it peak performance when the ambient temperature is 95 degrees or below. When the ambient heat or heat index exceeds 95 degrees you a/c is working harder and running longer. When sizing an a/c system you should take into consideration the summer climate where you live. In Texas we use 500 sf per ton as a rule with homes that have 8 foot ceilings, however walls with western exposure, windows facing the west (sun set) and vaulted or high ceilings should be considered in your determination. In commercial application you use 400 sf per ton, but you also factor the number of people occupying the space, equipment that generates heat and the amount of make up air that is required. 0sf-750 sf= 1.5 ton 751-1000sf= 2.0 ton 100sf1-1250sf=2.5 ton 1251sf-1500sf=3.0 ton 1501sf-1750sf=3.5 ton 1751sf-2000sf=4.0 ton 2001sf-2500sf=5.0 ton (MORE)

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 might violate this rule but for the sake of this question 8000 BTU/Pd will do nicely. The term potential is a theoretical maxim…um 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. (MORE)
It totally depends on how you are making it into energy. There are lots of ways.
1 gal of #2 fuel oil (or diesel for that matter) has an equivalent of 115,000 BTUS. I say equivalent because it has a little more than that raw (like 136k or so) but the furnace that burns it is only around 85% efficient, therefore you only get 115K BTUS.
I think a Google search will help you with this one. Try: horse manure/btu or something like that.
12,000 BTU = 1 ton , hence 60,000 BTU's = 5 tons etc How do I size the unit of airconditioning I need to purchase for my home in Houstan
948 BTUs = 1 watt for 1 million seconds, or 1 million watts for 1 second. 1 BTU = 1 watt for 1054.8 seconds, or 1054.8 watts for 1 second 1 watt = 3.4128 BTU per hour Using: 10 6 joules = Average of (International Table) and (ISO) = 948 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 per hour, so 36,000 BTU/h is equal to 3 tons of cooling.
A BTU is a measure of heat energy while a ton is a measure of weight. The two are not comparable.
One gallon of diesel fuel is equal to 139,200 BTU. The man whoinvented the compression-ignition engine was Rudolf Diesel. This iswhere diesel fuel gets its name.
A BTU is a measure of heat energy while a ton is a measure of weight. The two are not comparable.
The sulfur content of coal and its heating values are not constant across all grades of coal. It would require information of type of coal, carbon content, sulfur content and ash content to even start the calculation.
BTU per hour is a measure of power. Cubic meters is a measure of volume. Perhaps you mean cubic meters of propane, alcohol or some other fuel.
Heating units are not measured in tons as AC units are. Heating capacity is referred to in 1000`s of btu output per hour of operation. The ratio of input vs output = the efficiency rating, for example if your home furnace is rated at 100,000 btu per hour input and 80,000 btu per hour output . it is …80% efficient (when it was new). For AC 12.000 btu = 1 ton. (MORE)
Assuming you are referring to air conditioning, and not a ton of coal or a ton of plutonium, then 1 ton of air conditioning equivalent = 12 000 BTU.
That depends on what climate zone you are in and how badly the house leaks. Best to perform and individual Heat Loss calculation for each job rather than adhere to inexact rules of thumb as you are doing by asking this question.
Between (.07) and (.24) BTU per cubic foot. For Central Air, might be better to use (.07 BTU per Cu.Ft.) For window AC unit cooling 150 square feet, use (.024 BTU per Cu.Ft.) For window AC unit cooling 1600 square feet, use (.07 BTU per Cu.Ft.) [[[ All scenarios assume 8 foot ceilings ]…]] (MORE)
The amount of BTU's per square foot varies. The BTU's per ft2 inmy area is 30-35. In your area there might be more or less. For reference sake... Btu's are not used in Metric settings, Joulesare used. 1 btu = 11356 joule Contact a HVAC tech in your area.

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.)
1 btu international = 1055.06 joule (rounded) 1 btu internatonal per hour = 1.05506 kilojoule per hour (rounded)
2 tons No. A modern coal car carries 120 tons of coal. Some older onescarry 100 tons. On the B&O division of CSX, coal trains areusually 80 or 120 car unit trains. The length of the train isusually governed by the size of the originating or destinationyard.
"BTU per hour" is a unit of power. "Cubic meter" is a unit of volume or capacity. Neither can be converted into the other.
A ton is the amount of cooling capacity (power), not energy. 1 ton is equal to 12,000 BTU/hr.
A 2.5 ton A/c is the same as 30,000 BTU's 1 ton = 12,000 BTU's
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.
Standard bath is taken to be 20 gallons at 8.35 pounds per gallon and 60 degrees F of heating = 10,000 BTU per bath in round numbers, assuming 100% efficiency water heating.
Standard shower is taken to be 10 gallons at 8.35 pounds per gallon and 60 degrees F of heating = 5,000 BTU per shower in round numbers, assuming 100% efficiency water heating.
We found the following definition on the www: 1 BTU = 1,055.05585 joules Using that, 340 BTU/sec = 358,719 joule per second = 358.719 KW. Really an awful lot of power ! From this little exercise, we're going to remember the following: 1 BTU = a little more than 1,000 joules 1 BTU/sec =… a little more than 1 kilowatt (MORE)
A metric ton is 1000 kg (2204.621 lbs). This is nearly equal to a long ton (old English measure for coal) of 2240 lbs. The English (US) short ton measure is 2000 lbs. If a bag is 40 kg then a metric ton would be 25 bags, a short ton a little more than 22 bags and a long ton a little more than 25 bag…s. (MORE)
There are no BTUs per horsepower. A British Thermal Unit is an archaic unit of measurement of energy , whereas a horsepower is an archaic unit of measurement for power . As energy and power are two different quantities, you question is akin to asking, "How many miles are there in a mile per… hour?" (MORE)
None. The question is like asking how massive is a mile. A yard is a measure of distance, a tonne is a measure of mass. The two measure different things and one cannot be converted to the other.
Low- and medium-volatility grade bituminous coal typically generates between 26 and 30 million BTUs per ton.

Assuming that coal is essentially pure carbon, each 12 kg of coal will combust to form 44 kg of carbon dioxide (C+O 2 -->CO 2 ) a bit more than 3 times as much carbon dioxide as coal. A ton of carbon will burn to form about 3 tones of carbon dioxide.
At the end of 2008, Australia had 69,310 million metrictons of recoverable coal reserves, 8.9% of the world'stotal.
Between 25.8 and 36.6 million btu per cord, depending on type and condition. Note, in the english system, a MBTU is 1,000 BTU's, and a MMBTU is 1,000,000 BTU's.
square feet have no meaning 1 btu will raise 1 pound of water 1 degree F an 80 gallon water heater has 640 pounds of water 644 btu will raise the water temperature 1 degree typical water heater input is 36,000btu / hour water temperature desired 120 water starts at 70 degrees to raise… the water 50degrees requires 51000Btu or about 1.5 hours (recovery time) this does not account for heat loss or heat transfer from the flame to the water the volume of air in the room is a factor (square feet at 8' ceiling takes 1/2 as much as 16') the weight of the air the weight of the stuff in the room people in the room add heat a lot harder to cool an auditorium than an empty warehouse so what are you cooling and what is its thermal mass? is there a phase change? ( to cool water from 33 degrees to 32 takes 90 times the heat removal) is there a time constraint ? ( can we get it cool within 3 hours or must it take 5 minutes) most important how many degrees must we drop the temperature? (MORE)
A ton is a measure of weight; a British Thermal Unit is a measure of energy. The two are not compatible.
A BTU is about 1055 joules. A kilowatt is 1000 joules/second, so it is 3,600,000 joules/hour. Dividing that by 1055 joules gives you the equivalent of about 3400 BTU/hour.
