Therms to Watt-seconds Conversion
Enter the energy in therms below to get the value converted to watt-seconds.
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.
Therms and watt-seconds 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.
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.
