BTU to Joules

1 BTU is equal to 1055.06 Joules. BTU stands for British Thermal Units and is a measurement of energy. Specifically, it refers to the energy required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by a single degree Fahrenheit. BTU is a customary unit of measure. A Joule is equal to the work done by a force of one newton acting through one meter. The Joule derives its name from English physicist James Prescott Joule. A Joule can also be expressed in electrically terms as one watt-second. One watt-second is the energy released in one second by a current of one ampere through a resistance of one ohm.
