Conductivity

I found the heat transfer conductivity for rubber to be:
0.094 bt/h - foot F
and want to convert it to:
W/m C.

Can someone help me?

Btu/hour foot F is a unit of thermal conductivity, while watt/square meter C is a unit of heat transfer coefficient.

There is no conversion between them.

You would need unit such as Btu/hour square foot F, which is another of the same type of unit.

I should say there is no direct conversion between them, not that there is no conversion between them.

I would also think that the rubber manufacturer had written it in the wrong way. Suppose he did, then - what would
0.094 btu/h SQUARE foot F correspond in
W/h square meter C?

Using the I.T. definition of the Btu,

Btu/hour square foot F * 5.6782633 = watt/hour square meter C

I pulled this converison factor in Measure for Measure by Richard Young.

Thanks for your help!
