Joule Per Kilogram Per Kelvin (J/kg-K) is a unit in the category of Specific heat. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Joule Per Kilogram Per Kelvin (J/kg-K) has a dimension of L2T-2Q-1 where L is length, T is time, and Q is temperatur. This unit is the standard SI unit in this category.
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 (IT) Per Pound Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (IT)/lb-°F), British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Pound Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/lb-°F), Calorie (IT) Per Gram Per Degree Celsius (cal (IT)/g-°C), 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).
