How to Convert Microwatts to Btu Per Hour

To convert a microwatt measurement to a btu per hour measurement, divide the power by the conversion ratio.

Since one btu per hour is equal to 293,071 microwatts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

btu per hour = microwatts ÷ 293,071

The power in btu per hour is equal to the microwatts divided by 293,071.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 microwatts to btu per hour using the formula above.
500,000 µW = (500,000 ÷ 293,071) = 1.706071 Btu/h

Microwatts and btu per hour are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One microwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000,000 of a joule per second.

The microwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microwatts can be abbreviated as µW; for example, 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.

Btu Per Hour

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as Btu/h; for example, 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
