British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Square Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/h-ft2-°F) is a unit in the category of Thermal heat transfer coefficient. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US unit systems. British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Square Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/h-ft2-°F) has a dimension of MT-1Q-1 where M is mass, T is time, and Q is temperatur. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit W/m2-K by multiplying its value by a factor of 5.674464475.
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 transfer coefficient include British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Square Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (IT)/h-ft2-°F), Watt Per Square Centimeter Per Kelvin (W/cm2-K), Watt Per Square Meter Per Degree Celcius (W/m2-°C), and Watt Per Square Meter Per Kelvin (W/m2-K).
