How to convert watt hours to btus (Wh to Btu)
The formula for converting watt hours to btus is: Btu = Wh × 3.4144259497. To calculate the watt hour value in btus first substitute the watt hour value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt hour in btus we follow these steps:
Btu = Wh × 3.4144259497
Btu = 1 × 3.4144259497
Btu = 3.4144259497
In other words, 1 watt hour is equal to 3.4144259497 btus.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 watt hours to btus is:
- Understand the conversion formula: Btu = Wh × 3.4144259497
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for Wh so the formula becomes: Btu = 2 × 3.4144259497
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 3.4144259497 = 6.8288518994 Btu
In summary, 2 watt hours is equal to 6.8288518994 btus.
Converting btus to watt hours
In order to convert the other way around i.e. btus to watt hours, you would use the following formula: Wh = Btu × 0.29329722222222. To convert btus to watt hours first substitute the btu value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 btu in watt hours we follow these steps:
Wh = Btu × 0.29329722222222
Wh = 1 × 0.29329722222222
Wh = 0.29329722222222
Or in other words, 1 btu is equal to 0.29329722222222 watt hours.
