## How to convert quads to gigajoules (Q to GJ)

The formula for converting quads to gigajoules is: GJ = Q × 1055870000. To calculate the quad value in gigajoules first substitute the quad value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 quad in gigajoules we follow these steps:

GJ = Q × 1055870000

GJ = 1 × 1055870000

GJ = 1055870000

In other words, 1 quad is equal to 1055870000 gigajoules.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 quads to gigajoules is:

- Understand the conversion formula: GJ = Q × 1055870000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for Q so the formula becomes: GJ = 3 × 1055870000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 1055870000 = 3.16761e+9 GJ

In summary, 3 quads is equal to 3.16761e+9 gigajoules.

## Converting gigajoules to quads

In order to convert the other way around i.e. gigajoules to quads, you would use the following formula: Q = GJ × 0.00000000094708628903179. To convert gigajoules to quads first substitute the gigajoule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 gigajoule in quads we follow these steps:

Q = GJ × 0.00000000094708628903179

Q = 1 × 0.00000000094708628903179

Q = 0.00000000094708628903179

Or in other words, 1 gigajoule is equal to 0.00000000094708628903179 quads.

## Conversion Unit Definitions

### What is a Quad?

- Burning about 36 million tons of coal,
- Consuming 8 billion gallons of gasoline,
- Generating 293 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity.

### What is a Gigajoule?

^{9}joules. The prefix "giga-" signifies a factor of one billion, so a gigajoule represents a very large amount of energy.
