1 Joule (J)

=

1 Newton-Meter (N∙m)

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.

Newton-Meter : A newton metre, or newton-metre (also called "moment") is a unit of torque in the SI system. It is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to a moment arm which is one metre long. The symbol of newton-metre is N m or N•m. It is also a less commonly used unit of energy, or work, is equal to one joule.

### FAQ about Joule to Newton-Meter Conversion

1 joule (J) is equal to 1 newton-meter (N∙m).

1J = 1N∙m

The Energy E in newton-meter (N∙m) is equal to the Energy E in joule (J) times 1, that conversion formula:

E(N∙m) = E(J) × 1

One Joule is equal to 1 Newton-Meter:

1J = 1J × 1 = 1N∙m

One Newton-Meter is equal to 1 Joule:

1N∙m = 1N∙m × 1 = 1J

E(N∙m) = 5(J) × 1 = 5N∙m
