Here you can convert energy units Joule value into any other energy units.
The symbol for joule is J.
A joule is equal to the work done when a current of 1 ampere is passed through a resistance of 1 ohm for 1 second.
Q = I2× R × t
- Q = the amount of heat – the Joules (J)
- I = current intensity
- R = electrical resistance (Ω)
- t = time in which the current flows expressed in seconds
Joule And Force
A joule definiton says that it is an energy trasferred to an object when we work with a force of 1 Newton on that object in the direction of its motion for 1m of distance.
This would give us a formula:
W = F x d
- W – Energy (J)
- F = force (N)
- d = distance (m)
