What is a BTU?

hi ashley The British thermal unit (BTU or Btu) is a unit of energy used in the United States. It is also still occasionally encountered in the UK, in the context of older heating and cooling systems. In most other areas, it has been replaced by the SI unit of energy, the joule (J). A Btu is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound avoirdupois of water by one degree Fahrenheit. 143 Btu is required to melt a pound of ice. As is the case with the calorie, several different definitions of the Btu exist, which are based on different water temperatures and therefore vary by about 0.5%. Answer British Thermal Units - a standard measurement of heat answer its is a hockey team a name of a acient dude

How many btu?

It takes 970 B.T.U.s to change one pound of water to steam at any temperature. When water evaporates from your skin, from a glass or swimming pool at room temperature it takes with it 970 B.T.U.s per pound of water. It is not necessary for water to be heated to 212F to evaporate. Whenever water evaporates (turns into a gas) it takes with it 970 B.T.U.s per pound. If you want to boil water, it takes one B.T.U. for each degree F you raise the temperature of water till you get to 212F. At 212F, at sea level, water will not get hotter than 212F until every last bit of it has turned into a gas. The heat to transform liquid water to gas water is called the heat of vaporization, or the latent heat of evaporation. The heat to liquify water is called the heat of crystalization. Because the water's heat of vaporization is so high, water has cooling power. Outdoor misters are based on this principle. They spray a super fine mist of water into the air. Because the water in this super fine mist has a very large surface area, it evaporates at normal ambient tempemeratures. Air is hydroscopic. That means air naturally absorbs water. The less water or humidity there is in the air, the faster this process takes place. Whenever matter changes state from solid to liquid or liquid to gas, it takes heat to break the chemical bonds.

How many watts are in a BTU?

1 watt is 3.41 btu per hour. You'll often see "btu" as a shorthand for btus per hour. For example on a propane heater I just bought the package says "3000 btus." what that really means is 3000 btu/h or about 880 watts. Another Answer A watt is the SI unit for power . The BTU (British Thermal Unit) is an Imperial unit for energy . So, they are used to measure different quantities. There is no direct relationship between the two. The symbol, BTU, is not 'shorthand' for BTU/h -that's just slovenly practise on the part of manufacturers who can't be bothered to use the correct symbol. It's a mystery why any manufacturer would label their appliances in BTU/h, these days! There's not much logic behind labelling electric heaters in watts, but gas heaters in BTU/h? Why not just use watts for all heaters??

How many BTUs are in a square meter?

Answer Save A square meter of what? A BTU is a unit of energy, so the question can't be answered without more information. I try to calculate as per following: Roughly Btu's per sq.ft is 30.25. Since 1 square foot = 0.09290304 meters squared and can easily be calculated as Btu's per sq.meter is roughly 344.4451. So the space of 1 sq.meter room is 344.4451 BTU.

How many BTU are in a pound of propane?

How many btu are in a gallon of propane?

Type your answer here... there are around 91,600 BTUs in a gallon of propane. The standard BBQ sized bottle of propane contains 11 pounds of propane. Propane weighs about 4.2 pounds per gallon, so that 11 pounds of propane is about 2.5 gallons in its liquid state. That means there is 91,600 BTUs/Gal times 2.5 gallons so a BBQ sized tank of propane contains about 2.3 million BTUs. If your BBQ has a 50,000 BTU burner, on high heat, it will last a bit over 4 and half hours of run time.

How many kw is 80000 btu?

BTU, or British Thermal Unit, is an amount of energy. kW, or kiloWatt, is an amount of power, which is a measure of how fast energy is used or produced, similar to horsepower. Converting BTU to kW is like converting miles per hour to feet: they are not the same type of unit. That said, 80,000 BTU is equal to 23.44 kWh, or kiloWatt hours. At 1000 watts, or about ten light blubs, it would take 23.4 hours to use 80,000 BTU of energy. A typical car using 100 horsepower would take about 20 minutes to burn 80,000 BTU worth of gasoline.

How many btus in a kw?

BTU is a measure of energy, while kW is a measure of power. But100,000 BTU per hour is the same as 29 kW.

10kw equals how many btu?

This is an apples and oranges comparison, so it cannot be made. (No matter how many apples you have, you have no oranges, and vice verse.) 10 kw is an energy flow rate. Every second 10,000 watts are {created | used | whatever}. A BTU {British Thermal Unit} is a fixed amount of energy. Not every second: ONCE. That said, 10 KW for 1 second is equivalent to 9.48 BTU. Or, said another way, 10 KW continuous is the same as 9.48 BTU per second; another 9.48 each and every second. Power and energy are tricky. Energy is a fixed amount. Power is energy per unit time. Power is a flow. Think of the car. The 250 horsepower from the engine (wish on) is continuous. As long as there is gas in the tank, the power will flow. Same with 10 kilowatts. Pay the bill and the light stays on.

How many BTU are needed to evaporate one liter of water?

Quick Answer: About 2,139 BTU/litre at the normal boiling point. Long answer: It depends on the temperature and pressure of the water you start with. Before you can evaporate the water, you must heat it to it's boiling point. The warmer the water you start with the fewer BTUs will be needed to heat the water to its boiling point. Keep in mind the BTUs require to raise the water to its boiling point are very few compared to the BTUs required to change the water from a liquid to a gas. One litre of water weighs about 2.205 lb, and since both BTUs and lb are from the imperial set of units, we can make the rest of this explanation in terms of pounds and then just multiply by 2.205 when we get done. One pound of steam contains 1150 BTU/lb relative to liquid water at 32 °F. This is the energy you need to put into the water for it to evaporate if you start with water at 32 °F. If you start with water at 100 °F the water already has 70 BTU/lb so the BTUs required to evaporate the water when you start at 100 °F is 1150-70 = 1080 BTU/lb and so on. You can get all this information in a steam table which can be found easily by searching the web.

How many cubic inches in one btu?

"Cubic inch" is a unit of volume of space. "BTU" or "British Thermal Unit" is a unit of energy. The two units have different physical dimensions, they're used to describe measurements of completely different quantities, and neither one can be converted into the other one. The question is equivalent to asking "How many yards does it take to melt 5 pounds of ice ?".
