British thermal units and megacalories are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## British Thermal Units

British thermal units are a measure of heat energy. Specifically, one british thermal unit is equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. They are often used as a way to rate the energy heat producing appliances such furnaces, and to price heating fuels such as natural gas.

The british thermal unit is a US customary unit of energy. British thermal units can be abbreviated as *BTU*, for example 1 british thermal unit can be written as 1 BTU.

## Megacalories

One megacalorie is equal to 1,000,000 calories, which are the heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius. One megacalorie is equal to 4.184 megajoules.

Megacalories can be abbreviated as *Mcal*, for example 1 megacalorie can be written as 1 Mcal.
