## How to Convert Gigajoules to Therms

To convert a measurement in gigajoules to a measurement in therms, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 9.478171 therms/gigajoule.

Since one gigajoule is equal to 9.478171 therms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

therms = gigajoules × 9.478171

The energy in therms is equal to the energy in gigajoules multiplied by 9.478171.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gigajoules to therms using the formula above.
therms = (5 GJ × 9.478171) = 47.390856 therms

### How Many Therms Are in a Gigajoule?

There are 9.478171 therms in a gigajoule, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GJ = 9.478171 therms

## What is a Gigajoule?

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.

## What is a Therm?

One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to 100,000 BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Therms are often used by natural gas companies to measure the heat equivalent of gas used.

The therm is a US customary unit of energy.
