Formula:The formula for converting energy per unit mass between different units depends on the specific unit conversion being performed. However, the general principle involves multiplying or dividing the given value by the appropriate conversion factor. Here are the conversion factors for some common unit pairs:

• 1 Joule/kilogram (J/kg) = 1 Joule/kilogram
• 1 Kilojoule/kilogram (kJ/kg) = 1000 Joules/kilogram
• 1 Calorie (IT)/gram (cal/g) = 4.184 Joules/kilogram
• 1 Calorie (th)/gram (cal (th)/g) = 4.184 Joules/kilogram
• 1 Btu (IT)/pound (Btu/lb) = 2.326 Joules/kilogram
• 1 Btu (th)/pound (Btu (th)/lb) = 2.326 Joules/kilogram

How to Convert:Converting energy per unit mass using the Fuel Efficiency - Mass Unit Converter follows these steps:

1. Select Input Unit: Choose the unit of energy per unit mass you want to convert from.
2. Enter Value: Input the numerical value of the energy per unit mass.
3. Select Output Unit: Choose the desired unit of energy per unit mass you wish to convert to.
4. Calculate: The converter will automatically compute the equivalent value in the chosen unit.

Examples:Let's illustrate the conversion process with some examples:

1. Convert 500 Joules/kilogram to Btu (IT)/pound:

• Input: Energy per unit mass = 500 J/kg
• Output: Energy per unit mass = $\frac{500}{2.326}$ Btu/lb ≈ 214.846 Btu/lb
2. Convert 2 Calorie (th)/gram to Kilojoule/kilogram:

• Input: Energy per unit mass = 2 cal (th)/g
• Output: Energy per unit mass = $\frac{2 \times 4.184}{1000}$ kJ/kg ≈ 0.008368 kJ/kg
3. Convert 3 Pound/Btu (IT) to Calorie (IT)/gram:

• Input: Energy per unit mass = 3 lb/Btu (IT)
• Output: Energy per unit mass = $3 \times 2.326$ cal/g ≈ 6.978 cal/g
