How to Convert Therms to Joules
To convert a therm measurement to a joule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One therm is equal to 105,505,585.262 joules, so use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in joules is equal to the therms multiplied by 105,505,585.262.
Therms and joules 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.
The joule is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter. One joule is equal to the heat energy dissipated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of resistance for one second.
The joule is the SI derived unit for energy in the metric system. Joules can be abbreviated as J, for example 1 joule can be written as 1 J.
