- Cooling capacity
Cooling capacity is the measure of a cooling system's ability to remove heat. Common units include tons, and tonnes, which describe the amount of water at a given temperature that can be frozen in a given amount of time. Alternatively, it can be given in units of power such a kilowatt or BTU/h.
The basic SI units equation for deriving cooling capacity is of the form:
- is the cooling capacity [kW]
- is the mass rate [kg/s]
- Cp is the specific heat capacity [kJ/kg/°K]
- ΔT is the temperature change [°C]
