0 Joule (J)

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).

Joule : Joule is a derived unit of energy, work, or amount of heat in the international system of units. Its symbol is J. In the energy unit system, it is equal to the energy expended in applying a force of one newton through a distance of one meter. The unit name “joule” is in honor of the English physicist James Prescott Joule.

1 Erg = 0 Joule

FAQ about Erg to Joule Conversion

1 erg (erg) is equal to 1/10000000 joule (J).

1erg = 1/10000000J

The Energy E in joule (J) is equal to the Energy E in erg (erg) divided by 10000000, that conversion formula:

E(J) = E(erg) / 10000000

1000 Erg is equal to 0.0001 Joule:

1000erg = 1000erg / 10000000 = 0.0001J

One Joule is equal to 10000000 Erg:

1J = 1J × 10000000 = 10000000erg

E(J) = 5000(erg) / 10000000 = 0.0005J
