Per Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/ft-h-°F) is a unit in the category of Thermal conductivity. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US unit systems. British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/ft-h-°F) has a dimension of MLT-3Q-1 where M is mass, L is length, T is time, and Q is temperatur. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit W/m-K by multiplying its value by a factor of 1.729576722.
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).
