What is refrigerant capacity?

Herein, how do you calculate refrigerant capacity?
Each refrigerant has its own capacity for transferring heat. The higher its capacity, the more heat it transfers when it moves at a set rate. Divide the heat pump's output, in British Thermal Units (BTUs), by 2,930. If it transfers 150,000 BTUs per hour: 150,000 / 2,930 = 51.2 kilowatts.
Secondly, what is meant by 1 ton AC? A ton is the cooling capacity of an air conditioning system. One ton is equal to the amount of heat required (288,000 Btu) to melt one ton of ice in a 24-hour period. A one-ton air conditioner is rated at 12,000 Btu per hour (288,000/24). A two-ton unit would be rated at 24,000 Btu per hour.
Also to know, what is cooling capacity in kW?
cooling capacity of 1 ton is equal to 3.517 kW of power. For 1.5 ton AC ,power consumption of ac =cooling capacity/EER. =1.5*3.517/2.7=1.954 kW. AC consists of two units, Indoor unit which is called the evaporator and the Outdoor Unit which called the Compressor.
What is the unit of refrigeration?
The standard unit of refrigeration is ton refrigeration or simply ton denoted by TR. It is. equivalent to the rate of heat transfer needed to produce 1 ton (2000 lbs) of ice at 32 0F. from water at 32 0F in one day, i.e., 24 hours.
