Watt Per Square Meter Per Kelvin (W/m2-K) is a unit in the category of Thermal heat transfer coefficient. It is also known as watt/square meter-kelvin. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Watt Per Square Meter Per Kelvin (W/m2-K) has a dimension of MT-1Q-1 where M is mass, T is time, and 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 heat transfer coefficient include British Thermal Unit (IT) Per Square Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (IT)/h-ft2-°F), British Thermal Unit (therm.) Per Square Foot Per Hour Per Fahrenheit Degree (Btu (therm.)/h-ft2-°F), Watt Per Square Centimeter Per Kelvin (W/cm2-K), and Watt Per Square Meter Per Degree Celcius (W/m2-°C).
