International and Thermodynamic Calories
Name: Ahmad D.
There are 2 different calories, International calorie 4.1868 J and thermodynamic
calorie 4.184 J. What is the difference between them?
In all seriousness I really dont know why that is the case. Why do we have TONs (UK) and TONs(US)?
I guess they just decided to use both for some good reason. Otherwise they would not have both.
