It is also known as calorie per gram, calories per gram, cal/g, calorie/gram. This unit is commonly used in the INT unit system. Calorie (IT) Per Gram (cal (IT)/g) has a dimension of L2T-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 4186.74.
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).
