## How to Convert Megajoules to Therms

To convert a measurement in megajoules to a measurement in therms, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.009478 therms/megajoule.

Since one megajoule is equal to 0.009478 therms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

therms = megajoules × 0.009478

The energy in therms is equal to the energy in megajoules multiplied by 0.009478.

For example, here's how to convert 500 megajoules to therms using the formula above.
therms = (500 MJ × 0.009478) = 4.739086 therms

## What Is a Megajoule?

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

The megajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Megajoules can be abbreviated as MJ; for example, 1 megajoule can be written as 1 MJ.

## 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.
