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.

Foot-Pound : The foot-pound (symbol: ft•lb) is a measurement unit of energy which is equivalent to 1.3558179483314 joules. It is defined as the amount of energy expended in applying a force of one pound-force through a displacement of one foot. Commonly used in the Engineering and Gravitational Systems in United States customary and imperial units of measure. In additional, the foot-pound is also used as a unit of torque.

1 joule (J) is equal to 0.73756 foot-pound (ft∙lb).

1J = 0.73756ft∙lb

The Energy E in foot-pound (ft∙lb) is equal to the Energy E in joule (J) times 0.73756, that conversion formula:

E(ft∙lb) = E(J) × 0.73756

One Joule is equal to 0.73756 Foot-Pound:

1J = 1J × 0.73756 = 0.73756ft∙lb

One Foot-Pound is equal to 1.35582 Joule:

1ft∙lb = 1ft∙lb × 1.35582 = 1.35582J

E(ft∙lb) = 5(J) × 0.73756 = 3.6878ft∙lb
