All default values can be changed.
STEP 1 - Get the weight of a slab of wood (without bark)
The calculator uses "pounds" as the unit for weight, so you can convert from other units here:
STEP 2 - Calculate the energy content
The energy yield is the amount of energy that can be captured from burning wood.
Here it is expressed as BTU per pound of wood. One BTU is defined as the amount of energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit (F).
