The use of the British thermal unit (Btu {\rm Btu}) is common in much engineering work. (1 Btu {\rm Btu} = 1054J {\rm J}) A Btu {\rm Btu} is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 lb {\rm lb} of water by 1 ∘ F ^\circ {\rm F}. How many quads of energy does world energy consumption quantity represent?
