Expert Answer:

Calorific value:
 
The amount of heat produced by the complete combustion of 1 kg of a fuel is called its calorific value.
 
The calorific value of the fuel is expressed in kilojoules per kilogram.
 
For example:
 
when 1 kg of kerosene is burned completely, then 45000 kilojoules of heat energy is produced.
So calorific value of kerosene is 45000 kJ/kg.
