## How to Convert Therms to Watt-seconds

To convert a therm measurement to a watt-second measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One therm is equal to 105,505,585.262 watt-seconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in watt-seconds is equal to the therms multiplied by 105,505,585.262.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 therms to watt-seconds using the formula above.

Therms and watt-seconds are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## 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.

## Watt-seconds

The watt-second is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one second period. One watt-second is equal to 1/3,600 of a watt-hour or one joule.

Watt-seconds are usually abbreviated as *Ws*, although the formally adopted expression is *W·s*. The abbreviation *W s* is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws, 1 W·s, or 1 W s.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.^{[1]}
