BTU : The British thermal unit is a traditional measure unit of energy, approximately equals 1055 joules. Its symbol is Btu, or sometimes BTU. The unit is most often used as a measure of power (symbol: Btu/h) in the power. Now, the British thermal unit is almost replaced by the SI unit of energy, the joule.

Joule : Joule is a derived unit of energy, work, or amount of heat in the international system of units. Its symbol is J. In the energy unit system, it is equal to the energy expended in applying a force of one newton through a distance of one meter. The unit name “joule” is in honor of the English physicist James Prescott Joule.

### FAQ about BTU to Joule Conversion

1 btu (international) (BTU) is equal to 1055.05585 joule (J).

1BTU = 1055.05585J

The Energy E in joule (J) is equal to the Energy E in btu (BTU) times 1055.05585, that conversion formula:

E(J) = E(BTU) × 1055.05585

One BTU (international) is equal to 1055.05585 Joule:

1BTU = 1BTU × 1055.05585 = 1055.05585J

One Joule is equal to 0.00095 BTU:

1J = 1J × 0.00095 = 0.00095BTU

E(J) = 5(BTU) × 1055.05585 = 5275.27925J
