Watt-seconds to Quads Conversion
Enter the energy in watt-seconds below to get the value converted to quads.
How to Convert Watt-seconds to Quads
To convert a watt-second measurement to a quad measurement, divide 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 quads is equal to the watt-seconds divided by 1.0551E+18.
Watt-seconds and quads 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.
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.
