The **volumetric heat capacity** (VHC) of a substance is the value of the amount of energy,
which is needed to raise the temperature of one volume unit of this substance
by one unit of temperature.
The values depend on the temperature and pressure. Therefore, the conversions
are only valid under the same conditions of temperature and pressure.

Specific heat capacity | Several units like BTU_{th} lb^{-1} °F^{-1} |

Energy per mass | Several units like J/kg, cal/g and BTU/lb |

Heat transfer coefficient | Several units like J s^{-1}m^{-2}K^{-1} |

**Usage:**
Type the value to convert into the field, behind which you find the unit.
Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button.
Read the result in the other fields.
Use the "reset" button to reset your calculation.
Move the mouse over a unit or click on it to read its full name.

**Example:**
In a table you find a value of 2.507 J cm^{-3}K^{-1} for the
volumetric heat capacity of plaster. What is the size of this value
in the unit BTU_{IT} gal_{US}^{-1}°F^{-1}?
Type "2.507" into the field behind which
"J cm^{-3}K^{-1}" is written.
Click on any empty space in the window or on the "calculate" button.
Read the result in the other fields
(e.g. 4997.1 BTU_{IT} gal_{US}^{-1}°F^{-1}).
