**British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Pound Mass**

**British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Pound Mass (Btu (IT)/lbm)**is a unit in the category of

*Thermal heat capacity*. It is also known as Btu per pound, Btu/pound, Btu/lb. This unit is commonly used in the UK unit system. British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Pound Mass (Btu (IT)/lbm) has a dimension of L

^{2}T

^{-2}where L is length, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit J/kg by multiplying its value by a factor of 2326.000324.

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 heat capacity include British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Pound Mass (Btu (therm.)/lbm), Calorie (IT) Per Gram (cal (IT)/g), Calorie (therm.) Per Gram (cal (therm.)/g), Joule Per Gram (J/g), Joule Per Kilogram (J/kg), Kilocalorie (IT) Per Kilogram (Cal (IT)/kg, kcal/kg), and Kilowatt-Hour Per Kilogram (kWh/kg).
