How to Convert Therms to Calories
To convert a therm measurement to a calorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One therm is equal to 25,216,440.07218 calories, so use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in calories is equal to the therms multiplied by 25,216,440.07218.
Therms and calories are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
When measuring the energy content in foods, the large calorie, or kilocalorie is used, but it's often still just called a "calorie." When both the calorie and large calorie are used in the same context it is common to refer to the calorie as a "small calorie."
Calories can be abbreviated as cal, for example 1 calorie can be written as 1 cal.
