## What is joule and how it is calculated?

Joule is the SI unit of work done. Therefore, the dimensional formula of Joule is the same as that of the work done. Since, Work done (W) = Force × Displacement . . . . ( 1) And, Force = Mass × acceleration = M1 × [M0 L T-2]

## What is the formula for energy in joules?

Overview of Work, Energy and Power

What is Work, Energy and Power?

Formula The energy stored in an object due to its position and height is known as potential energy and is given by the formula: P.E. = mgh
Unit The SI unit of energy is Joules (J).
Power

## What is the equivalent of 1 joule?

One joule equals the work done (or energy expended) by a force of one newton (N) acting over a distance of one meter (m). One newton equals a force that produces an acceleration of one meter per second (s) per second on a one kilogram (kg) mass. Therefore, one joule equals one newton•meter.

## What is joule constant?

(Also called mechanical equivalent of heat.) The amount of mechanical work necessary to raise the temperature of a given mass of water by 1 degree Celsius. In modern usage it is the heat capacity of water, which at room temperature is 4186 Joules kg-1.

## How do you calculate joules of force?

In classical mechanics, kinetic energy (KE) is equal to half of an object’s mass (1/2*m) multiplied by the velocity squared. For example, if a an object with a mass of 10 kg (m = 10 kg) is moving at a velocity of 5 meters per second (v = 5 m/s), the kinetic energy is equal to 125 Joules, or (1/2 * 10 kg) * 5 m/s2.

## Is a watt equal to a joule?

watt, unit of power in the International System of Units (SI) equal to one joule of work performed per second, or to 1/746 horsepower.

## How many joules are in a watt?

Watts are defined as 1 Watt = 1 Joule per second (1W = 1 J/s) which means that 1 kW = 1000 J/s. A Watt is the amount of energy (in Joules) that an electrical device (such as a light) is burning per second that it’s running. So a 60W bulb is burning 60 Joules of energy every second you have it turned on.

## What is newton SI unit?

The International System of Units (SI) is widely used for trade, science and engineering. The SI unit of force is the newton, symbol N. The base units relevant to force are: The metre, unit of length — symbol m. The kilogram, unit of mass — symbol kg.

## What is a joule in base Units?

The SI unit of energy is the joule (J). The joule has base units of kg·m²/s² = N·m. A joule is defined as the work done or energy required to exert a force of one newton for a distance of one metre.

## What is joules method?

Joule heating, also known as resistive, resistance, or Ohmic heating, is the process by which the passage of an electric current through a conductor produces heat.

## What is joule’s Law in physics?

Joule’s law. noun. physics the principle that the heat produced by an electric current is equal to the product of the resistance of the conductor, the square of the current, and the time for which it flows.

## How do you convert kg to J?

The equivalence of mass and energy is derived from the famous Einstein’s equation E = mc² where E is energy, m is mass and c = 299 792 458 m/s is the speed of light. That is, 1 kilogram of mass is equal to 8.98·10¹⁶ joules of energy or (1 J)/c² = 1.112 650 056 × 10⁻¹⁷ kg.

## How do you convert Newtons to joules?

To convert any number from newton to joules, multiply the number by 1. The ratio of newton to joule per meter is 1:1. For example, you want to convert a force of 9.6 newtons to joules per meter. Multiply 9.6 by 1, and your answer is 9.6 joules per meter.
