Watt-seconds to Gigajoules Conversion
Enter the energy in watt-seconds below to get the value converted to gigajoules.
How to Convert Watt-seconds to Gigajoules
To convert a watt-second measurement to a gigajoule measurement, divide the energy by the conversion ratio. One gigajoule is equal to 1,000,000,000 watt-seconds, so use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in gigajoules is equal to the watt-seconds divided by 1,000,000,000.
Watt-seconds and gigajoules are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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.
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 109. Gigajoules can be abbreviated as GJ; for example, 1 gigajoule can be written as 1 GJ.
