# Energy converter

Conversion of the energy is one of the most complicated types of conversions. If you are here right now, you are probably aware of it. Do you not have the energy to struggle with the **energy conversion** on your own anymore? You don’t have to. The **energy converter **will do everything for you. Don’t you believe us? Keep reading and see for yourself that it is true.

**Will this article be entirely dedicated to the energy converter?** Mostly yes, but not only. We will tell you about the energy too. It is better to know what you are going to calculate exactly, don’t you think? If we are going to talk about the energy, it means we also want to focus on the energy units. And then, if you will know the basic information, we will show you our** energy converter**. So, it is time to start!

As we said, the theory first. **What is the energy then? **And, of course, we don’t mean the energy which you have or don’t have today. Okay, it is important when it comes to your everyday life, but not when it comes to physics. So, **what is the definition of the energy from the physics standpoint?**

Energy is the quantitative property which is needed to be transferred to a particular object to perform work on it or to heat it. We think that this definition is quite simple. The only one difficulty with it can be caused by the term ‘quantitative property’.

What does the quantitative property mean? Simply put, it is a way to express the value with the use of a combination of the value and a unit. We are sure you have seen this so far. It can be, for instance, 50 kg.

One more thing you need to know about the energy. Energy is a conserved quantity. It means it is not possible to create or destroy it, but only to convert it in form.

You know now what the energy is, so it is time to learn a little about the energy units. The base energy unit is the Joule. It is the unit of the International System of Units (SI). Its symbol is ‘J’. The base equation to define the Joule looks as follows:

- J = kg * m
^{2}* s^{-2}

The symbols used in this equation are: ‘kg’ – kilogram, ‘m’ – meter, ‘s’ – second.

A little tidbit – the Joule is named after the English physicist, James Prescott Joule.

Of course, besides the Joule, there are also other units of the energy. They are, for instance, kilowatt-hour (kW*h), kilojoule (kJ), Newton meter (N*m) or foot-pound (ft*lbf). We compared all of them to the Joule, have a look:

- 1 kWh = 3600000 Joule;
- 1 kJ = 1000 Joule;
- 1 Nm = 1 Joule;
- 1 ft lbf = 1.3558179483 Joule.

We come to the end of this part of the article. We want to say one more thing. There is more than one form of the energy. We are not going to mention all of them, but here are 3 examples:

- Electric energy;
- Magnetic energy;
- Chemical energy.

We think this theoretical part is sufficient. We gathered here only the most important information in a nutshell. And now we want to move on to our **energy converter** – a solution thanks to which you will save your energy.

## Energy converter – calculate without wasting your energy

Imagine you can make any** energy conversion** without wasting your energy, without making mistakes and in just a few seconds. Impossible? Nothing more wrong. You do not have to imagine it. You can have it with our **energy converter**.

The **energy converter** is a kind of a calculator, but better than physical ones. Why? Because it is web-based and automatized. What does it mean for you? First, you can use it on every device with an Internet connection. It works with every web browser. Second, you do not need to know any formula to make the** energy conversion**. The **energy converter **contains all of them. Third, thanks to the automating, you will get your result in less than one second. It sounds amazing, isn’t it?

**How to use this energy converter and save your energy?** Our app is easy to use. You won’t have problems with the use of it, we are sure. Here are 3 simple steps to get your result:

- Enter the amount of the energy, which you want to convert.
- Pick the unit of the energy, in which you have the number mentioned above.
- Pick the unit of the energy, in which you want to see the final result.

It is simple, right? We have told you.

So what about trying the** energy converter **in practice? We are sure that is the best way to learn new things, so let’s move on.

### Energy converter – a practical example

For instance, let’s make the **energy conversion** from 50 Joule to foot-pound. What do you need to do? Enter the 50 as the number which you want to convert, pick the Joule as the unit which you have and then pick the foot-pound as the unit in which you want to see your result.

After these 3 steps the result will be shown on a screen. **What is 50 Joule in foot-pound? **50 Joule is equal to 36.878107465 foot-pounds.

How long did it take us? Just 5 seconds. The whole process – from entering the data, to see the result. Is there any quicker solution to make the** energy conversion **than using the **energy converter**?
