## How to convert quads to joules (Q to J)

The formula for converting quads to joules is: J = Q × 1055870000000000000. To calculate the quad value in joules first substitute the quad value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 quad in joules we follow these steps:

J = Q × 1055870000000000000

J = 1 × 1055870000000000000

J = 1055870000000000000

In other words, 1 quad is equal to 1055870000000000000 joules.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 4 quads to joules is:

- Understand the conversion formula: J = Q × 1055870000000000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 4 for Q so the formula becomes: J = 4 × 1055870000000000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 4 × 1055870000000000000 = 4.22348e+18 J

In summary, 4 quads is equal to 4.22348e+18 joules.

## Converting joules to quads

In order to convert the other way around i.e. joules to quads, you would use the following formula: Q = J × 9.4708628903179e-19. To convert joules to quads first substitute the joule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 joule in quads we follow these steps:

Q = J × 9.4708628903179e-19

Q = 1 × 9.4708628903179e-19

Q = 0.00000000000000000094708628903179

Or in other words, 1 joule is equal to 0.00000000000000000094708628903179 quads.
