energy equivalent

n, = heat capacity or water equivalent
the energy required to raise the temperature of the calorimeter an arbitrary unit. This is the quantity that, when multiplied by the corrected temperature rise, then adjusted for extraneous heat effects, and divided by the weight of the sample, gives the gross calorific value.
DISCUSSION — Energy units for quantities listed throughout this test method are such that the number of energy units per gram of sample corresponds exactly to the number of British thermal units per pound of sample. For brevity, these are referred to as British thermal units. The actual energies are smaller than those stated by the ratio of the number of pounds per gram (1/453.59). The energy equivalent of the calorimeter has the units (British thermal units per pound) times (grams per degree). Time is expressed in minutes. Mass is expressed in grams. D5865
