An office heater puts out 2070 Btus (British thermal units) of energy in the form of heat per hour. Given that 1 Btu = 1.055 kJ, how many megajoules of energy in the form of heat can be produced per year (365 days) by the heater (assume continuous operation)?

  • Chemistry -

    2070 BTU/hr x 24 hr/day x (365 days/yr) x 1.055 kJ/BTU x (1 megajoule/1000 kJ) = ?

  • Chemistry -

    19130.526MJ/HR
