How to Convert Gigajoules to Therms

To convert a gigajoule measurement to a therm measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One gigajoule is equal to 9.478171 therms, so use this simple formula to convert:

therms = gigajoules × 9.478171

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

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

Gigajoules and therms are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Gigajoules

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which are 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 106. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.

Therms

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.
