How to Convert Quads to Joules

To convert a measurement in quads to a measurement in joules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 1.0551E+18 joules/quad.

Since one quad is equal to 1.0551E+18 joules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

joules = quads × 1.0551E+18

The energy in joules is equal to the energy in quads multiplied by 1.0551E+18.

For example, here's how to convert 5 quads to joules using the formula above.
joules = (5 quads × 1.0551E+18) = 5.2753E+18 J

How Many Joules Are in a Quad?

There are 1.0551E+18 joules in a quad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 quads = 1.0551E+18 J

Quads and joules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Quad?

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 Joule?

The joule is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.[1] One joule is equal to the heat energy dissipated by the current of one ampere through one ohm of resistance for one second.

One joule is also equal to the energy needed to move an electric charge of one coulomb through a potential difference of one volt. In addition, one joule is also equal to the one watt-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.
