Definitions for "joule"
Keywords:  newton, ergs, calorie, mks, watt
A unit of work which is equal to 107 ergs (the unit of work in the C. G. S. system of units), and is equivalent to one watt-second, the energy expended in one second by an electric current of one ampere in a resistance of one ohm; also called the absolute joule. It is abbreviated J or j. The international joule is slightly larger, being 1.000167 times the absolute joule. The absolute joule is approximately equal to 0.737562 foot pounds, 0.239006 gram-calories (small calories), and 3.72506 x 10-7 horsepower-hours, and 0.000948451 B.t.u.
unit for work in the MKS system of units: 1 J = 107 ergs = 0.239 cal.
jool The unit for measuring energy (J).
Joule is a lunar impact crater that lies on the far side of the Moon. It is located to the north-northeast of the Mach walled-plain. To the northwest of Joule is Blazhko crater.
Joule is a concurrent dataflow programming language, designed for building distributed applications. It is so concurrent, that the order of statements within a block is irrelevant to the operation of the block. Statements are executed whenever possible, based on their inputs.
English physicist who established the mechanical theory of heat and discovered the first law of thermodynamics (1818-1889)
a measurement of power or heat required to sustain one
a measure of work done, or heat quantity
Joule ratings measure a surge suppressor's ability to handle surges: more joules mean more protection.
