Which BTU. There are (at least) five definitions, differing in subtle differences of the starting and stopping water temp.

Per NIST SP 811, divide by 3.154591 for Steam Table BTU or 3.152481 for thermochemical BTU.

Yikes! This is for solar hot water heaters/air conditioners. Either is accurate enough. Thanks.
