10000000 Erg (erg)

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.

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).

### How to convert Joule to Erg ?

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

1J = 10000000erg

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

E(erg) = E(J) × 10000000

#### How many Erg in a Joule?

One Joule is equal to 10000000 Erg:

1J = 1J × 10000000 = 10000000erg

#### How many Joule in 1000 Erg?

1000 Erg is equal to 0.0001 Joule:

1000erg = 1000erg / 10000000 = 0.0001J

#### How to Convert 5 Joule to Erg?

E(erg) = 5(J) × 10000000 = 50000000erg
