A joule is a derived unit of energy in the International System of Units.
- A joule is equal to the energy transferred to (or work done on) an object when a force of one newton acts on that object in the direction of its motion through a distance of one metre(1 newton/metre or N⋅m).
- It is also the energy dissipated as heat when an electric current of one ampere passes through a resistance of one ohm for one second.
- Where symbol kg is a kilogram, m is a metre, s is a second, N is a newton, Pa is a pascal, W is a watt, and V is the volt, then the symbol J is for joule.
