Enter all but one of the energy in British thermal units and the conversion factor into the calculator to determine the power in kilowatts. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Btu To Kw Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from British thermal units (Btu) to kilowatts (Kw).

Kw = Btu * 0.00029307107


  • Kw is the power in kilowatts Btu is the energy in British thermal units

To calculate the power in kilowatts, multiply the energy in British thermal units by 0.00029307107.

What is a Btu To Kw?

A Btu (British Thermal Unit) to kW (Kilowatt) is a conversion between two units of energy. A Btu is a traditional unit of heat that is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. On the other hand, a kilowatt is a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI) that is equal to one thousand watts. The conversion from Btu to kW is used in various fields such as engineering, physics, and energy industries to convert the energy produced or consumed from one unit to another.

How to Calculate Btu To Kw?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Btu to Kw conversion using the formula: Kw = Btu * 0.00029307107.

  1. First, determine the energy in British thermal units (Btu).
  2. Next, insert the value of Btu into the formula: Kw = Btu * 0.00029307107.
  3. Calculate the result by multiplying the value of Btu by 0.00029307107.
  4. Finally, obtain the power in kilowatts (Kw).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with a calculator.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Energy in British thermal units (Btu) = 500

Inserting the value of Btu into the formula: Kw = 500 * 0.00029307107

Calculating the result: Kw = 0.146535535

The power in kilowatts (Kw) is approximately 0.1465.
