How to convert megawatts to BTU/hr (MW to BTU/hr)
The formula for converting megawatts to BTU/hr is: BTU/hr = MW × 3412141.6351330755. To calculate the megawatt value in BTU/hr first substitute the megawatt value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 megawatt in BTU/hr we follow these steps:
BTU/hr = MW × 3412141.6351330755
BTU/hr = 1 × 3412141.6351330755
BTU/hr = 3412141.6351330755
In other words, 1 megawatt is equal to 3412141.6351330755 BTU/hr.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 2 megawatts to BTU/hr is:
- Understand the conversion formula: BTU/hr = MW × 3412141.6351330755
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 2 for MW so the formula becomes: BTU/hr = 2 × 3412141.6351330755
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 2 × 3412141.6351330755 = 6824283.270266151 BTU/hr
In summary, 2 megawatts is equal to 6824283.270266151 BTU/hr.
Converting BTU/hr to megawatts
In order to convert the other way around i.e. BTU/hr to megawatts, you would use the following formula: MW = BTU/hr × 0.00000029307107. To convert BTU/hr to megawatts first substitute the BTU/hr value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 BTU/hr in megawatts we follow these steps:
MW = BTU/hr × 0.00000029307107
MW = 1 × 0.00000029307107
MW = 0.00000029307107
Or in other words, 1 BTU/hr is equal to 0.00000029307107 megawatts.
