Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both of these are units of energy. joule is the SI unit of energy. calorie is the pre SI unit of energy.. 1 Calorie = 4.814 joules.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like, we defined Newton as the attraction with which earth pulls an apple of 100 grams

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0could you just give some practical definition for Joule, so that i understand and make sense of it plz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look!! it can be defined in many ways. like it can be defined as: the amount of work done when a force of 1 newton is applied on a body and it displaces 1metre.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can i say, if an apple of 100grams falls from 1 meter height, then the kinetic energy of apple will be 1 Joule ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0defining something is way too easy a thing. what you have to do is just write the expression. in this case write any expression having work or energy. as WORK = FORCE * DISPLACEMENT. so, just put FORCE = 1 NEWTON DISPLACEMENT= 1metre. on putting these in the expression, what we get is your "1 Joule!!". i hope this helps you!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahh yes i see now , so if displancement = 2, force =1, then W = 2 Joule !!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also, that 2Joule energy just manifests of Kinetic energy, right ?
