Convert Energy

Energy can take various forms, such as wave energy, magnetic energy, mechanical energy, etc. Regardless of the type of energy, it can be measured. The measurements can be made in several different energy units, where the most commonly used are Joules and watts.

Watt is mostly used for measuring power consumption, for example kilowatt (1000 watts) is used as a unit of measurement for power consumption.

The Joule unit is most commonly used in physics as an accurate measure of energy.

To give you a mental model: 60 joules corresponds to the electricity need to have a 60 watt light bulb for one second.
