1.1.2 Units and conversion help

Course subject(s) 1. Efficiency, primary energy, CO2-emissions, costs and application to boilers

In this course, we use SI (International System of Units) to express values and data. If you are used to other systems, please be sure to convert units for course assignments and quizzes. For example, we express temperatures in Kelvin (K) or degrees Celsius (°C), so if you are used to giving temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit, be sure to convert them to Kelvin or degrees Celsius before submitting your answers.


The following document is a useful guide to units and the conventions we follow in this course. Please refer to it if anything is unclear of if you need help with conversions.
