thermodynamic temperature T, (Θ) kelvin K The kelvin is the fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water. For practical measurements, the International Temperature Scale of 1990 defines several fixed points and interpolation procedures.
Celsius temperature t, φ degree Celsius °C The degree Celsius is a special name for the unit kelvin, for use in stating values of Celsius temperature. t = TT0, where T0 = 273.15 K
linear expansion coefficient αl reciprocal kelvin, kelvin to the power negative 1 K−1 \alpha_l=\frac 1l\frac lT

Annex A of ISO 31-4 lists units of heat based on the foot, pound and second and some other units, including the degree Rankine, degree Fahrenheit, British thermal unit and others. Annex B lists conversion factors for three versions of the calorie.
