## Conversion Factors:

• Joules to BTU: 1 BTU = 1,055.06 joules
• BTU to Joules: 1 joule = 1/1,055.06 BTU

## How to Convert Joules to BTU:

To convert joules to BTU, divide the number of joules by 1,055.06.

BTU = Joules (J)/1,055.06

Example: Convert 5,000 joules to BTU.

BTU=5,000 J/1,055.06 = 4.74 BTU

## How to Convert BTU to Joules:

To convert BTU to joules, multiply the number of BTU by 1,055.06.

Joules (J)=BTU×1,055.06

Example: Convert 10 BTU to joules.

Joules=10 BTU×1,055.06 = 10,550.6 J

## Example 1:

Convert 500 joules to BTU.

BTU=Joules (J)/1,055.06

Calculation: BTU = 500 J/1,055.06 = 0.474 BTU

## Example 2:

Convert 1,200 joules to BTU.

Calculation: BTU = 1,200 J/1,055.06 = 1.137 BTU

## Example 3:

Convert 3,000 joules to BTU.

Calculation: BTU = 3,000 J1,055.06 = 2.843 BTU

## Example 4:

Convert 7,500 joules to BTU.

Calculation: BTU = 7,500 J/1,055.06 = 7.109 BTU

## Example 5:

Convert 10,000 joules to BTU.

Calculation: BTU = 10,000 J/1,055.06 = 9.478 BTU

## Example 1:

Convert 1 BTU to joules.

Joules (J) = BTU×1,055.06

Calculation: Joules = 1 BTU×1,055.06 = 1,055.06 J

## Example 2:

Convert 3 BTU to joules.

Calculation: Joules = 3 BTU×1,055.06 = 3,165.18 J

## Example 3:

Convert 5 BTU to joules.

Calculation: Joules = 5 BTU×1,055.06 = 5,275.30 J

## Example 4:

Convert 7 BTU to joules.

Calculation: Joules = 7 BTU×1,055.06 = 7,385.42 J

## Example 5:

Convert 10 BTU to joules.

Calculation: Joules = 10 BTU×1,055.06 = 10,550.60 J
