Per Kelvin (/K) is a unit in the category of Thermal expansion coefficient. This unit is commonly used in the INT unit system. Per Kelvin (/K) has a dimension of Q-1 where 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 Thermal expansion coefficient include Microinch Per Inch Per Fahrenheit Degree (µin/in-°F), Micron Per Meter Per Celsius Degree (µm/m-°C), Per Celsius Degree (/°C), and Per Fahrenheit Degree (/°F).
