Quads to Watt-seconds Conversion
Enter the energy in quads below to get the value converted to watt-seconds.
How to Convert Quads to Watt-seconds
To convert a quad measurement to a watt-second measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One quad is equal to 1.0551E+18 watt-seconds, so use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in watt-seconds is equal to the quads multiplied by 1.0551E+18.
Quads and watt-seconds are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
Watt-seconds are usually abbreviated as Ws, although the formally adopted expression is W·s. The abbreviation W s is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws, 1 W·s, or 1 W s.
In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.
