How to convert watt seconds to joules (Ws to J)
The formula for converting watt seconds to joules is: J = Ws × 1. To calculate the watt second value in joules first substitute the watt second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 watt second in joules we follow these steps:
J = Ws × 1
J = 1 × 1
J = 1
In other words, 1 watt second is equal to 1 joule.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 watt seconds to joules is:
- Understand the conversion formula: J = Ws × 1
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for Ws so the formula becomes: J = 5 × 1
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 1 = 5 J
In summary, 5 watt seconds is equal to 5 joules.
Converting joules to watt seconds
In order to convert the other way around i.e. joules to watt seconds, you would use the following formula: Ws = J × 1. To convert joules to watt seconds first substitute the joule value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 joule in watt seconds we follow these steps:
Ws = J × 1
Ws = 1 × 1
Ws = 1
Or in other words, 1 joule is equal to 1 watt second.
