A joule (Script error: No such module "IPAc-en". or sometimes Script error: No such module "IPAc-en".) is a unit in the SI system. That means that it makes sense and most of the world uses it. It measures energy; usually in scientific or electrical appliances . It is named after James Prescott Joule.

A joule equals one newton multiplied by a metre (1J = 1N × 1m). It is related to the watt (a unit of power): one watt equals one joule per second.

It is also the work done passing one amp through a resistance of one ohm for one second.
