## Calculation

## British Thermal Unit (BTU)

The British Thermal Unit (BTU) is a unit of heat energy used in the United States and some other countries. One BTU is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. This unit is commonly used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to measure the heating and cooling capacity of equipment. It is also used in the context of power generation and fuel energy content, such as in natural gas, propane, and coal. The BTU is essential for understanding and managing energy transfer, consumption, and efficiency in various applications.

## Gigajoules

A Gigajoule (GJ) is a unit of energy equal to 1,000,000,000 joules. It is commonly used to measure very large quantities of energy, such as the energy consumption of cities, the energy production of power plants, and the energy content of large quantities of fuel. One gigajoule is the amount of energy required to apply a force of one newton over a distance of one billion meters, or the energy transferred when one gigawatt of power is applied for one second. Gigajoules are used in various fields, including energy production, industrial processes, and large-scale energy management, providing a standard measure for comparing substantial energy transfers and consumption.
