How to Convert Joules to Quads
To convert a joule measurement to a quad measurement, divide the energy by the conversion ratio.
Since one quad is equal to 1.0551E+18 joules, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in quads is equal to the joules divided by 1.0551E+18.
Joules and quads are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
The joule is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter. One joule is equal to the heat energy dissipated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of resistance for one second.
The joule is the SI derived unit for energy in the metric system. Joules can be abbreviated as J; for example, 1 joule can be written as 1 J.
One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Quads are usually used when talking about energy resources and consumption on a national or international scale.
The quad is a US customary unit of energy.
