## How to Convert Quads to Gigajoules

To convert a measurement in quads to a measurement in gigajoules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1,055,055,852.62 gigajoules/quad.

Since one quad is equal to 1,055,055,852.62 gigajoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the energy in quads multiplied by 1,055,055,852.62.

For example, here's how to convert 5 quads to gigajoules using the formula above.
gigajoules = (5 quads × 1,055,055,852.62) = 5,275,279,263.1 GJ

### How Many Gigajoules Are in a Quad?

There are 1,055,055,852.62 gigajoules in a quad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

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.

## What Is a Gigajoule?

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The gigajoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
