It is also known as calories per gram, calorie per gram, cal/gram, calorie/gram. This unit is commonly used in the INT unit system. Calorie (therm.) Per Gram (cal (therm.)/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 4184.
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).
