How to Convert Watt-seconds to Gigajoules

To convert a watt-second measurement to a gigajoule measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One watt-second is equal to 1.0E-9 gigajoules, so use this simple formula to convert:

gigajoules = watt-seconds × 1.0E-9

The energy in gigajoules is equal to the watt-seconds multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 watt-seconds to gigajoules using the formula above.
5 Ws = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 GJ

Watt-seconds and gigajoules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Watt-seconds

The watt-second is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one second period. One watt-second is equal to 1/3,600 of a watt-hour or one joule.

Watt-seconds can be abbreviated as Ws, for example 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws.

Gigajoules

One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 joules, which are 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 106. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ, for example 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
