**British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Pound Per Fahrenheit Degree**

**British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Pound Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (IT)/lb-°F)**is a unit in the category of

*Specific heat*. This unit is commonly used in the UK unit system. British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Pound Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (IT)/lb-°F) has a dimension of L

^{2}T

^{-2}Q

^{-1}where L is length, T is time, and Q is temperatur. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit J/kg-K by multiplying its value by a factor of 4186.800585.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Specific heat include British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Pound Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/lb-°F), Calorie (IT) Per Gram Per Degree Celsius (cal (IT)/g-°C), Joule Per Kilogram Per Kelvin (J/kg-K), Mayer, Newton Meter Per Kilogram Per Kelvin (N-m/kg-K), and Pound Force Foot Per Pound Mass Per Degree Fahrenheit (lbf-ft/lb-°F).
