  The purpose of submitting this foreign availability information would be to make the U.S. Government more aware of the foreign availability of items not controlled for national security reasons. In addition, this rule makes the following technical revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL) (Supplement No. 1 to Part of the EAR). * Two common measures of energy are British thermal units (Btu) and joules. All forms of energy can be expressed in these units. One Btu is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water from 39 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. One joule is the amount of energy needed to lift one hundred grams ( ounces) upward by one meter ( feet) while on .
