Calorie : The calorie is a pre-SI metric unit of energy. Its symbol is cal, and first defined as a unit of heat by Nicolas Clément in 1824. The calorie is commonly used in the field of chemistry, and in many countries it is commonly used as a unit of food energy. There are two defined for the calorie, gram calorie (approximately equals 4.2 joules) and kilogram calorie (approximately equals 4.2 kilojoules).

Erg : Erg (short for ergon) is a measurement unit of energy and mechanical work used in physics, equal to 10−7 joules. It is defined as the amount of work done by a force of one dyne exerted for a distance of one centimeter. The unit of erg originated in the CGS (centimetre–gram–second) system of units, equal to one gram centimeter-squared per second-squared (g•cm2/s2).
