It is also known as watts per meter per kelvin, watt per metre per kelvin, watts per metre per kelvin. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Watt Per Meter Per Kelvin (W/m-K) has a dimension of MLT-3Q-1 where M is mass, 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).
