Though i thought this was a chemistry topic, we are learning it in my physics class as well

1. The specific heat of aluminum is 0.22 cal/g *C

What is the specific heat in Btu/lb*F

The farenheit is the part that im having the hardest time with. I found that 1Kcal=3.968 BTU and i know how to convert to lbs, but i dont know how to work with the F since you cant simply use the 5/9ths formula

2. How many calories would it take to raise the tempurature of the entire Pacific Ocean by 1*F.

Once again, im having the most trouble with the farenheit part. I found that the volume of the pacific ocean is 4.14x10^8 Km3 and the density is 1027 Kg/m^3.

Answers need to be in SI. Thanks for your help!
