This unit is commonly used in the US unit system. Pound Force Foot Per Pound Mass Per Degree Fahrenheit (lbf-ft/lb-°F) has a dimension of L2T-2Q-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 5.38033298647.
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).
