Conversion Factors |
---|
1 J = 1 coulomb-volt = 1 N m |
1 cal = 4.184 J |
1 eV = 1.602e-19 J |
1 MeV = 1.602e-13 J |
1 eV/molecule = 23045 cal/mol |
1 amu = 1.66043e-31 J = 931.4812 MeV |
1 atm L = 101.3 J |
1 joule = 1e7 ergs |
1 BTU = 252 cal |
More detailed conversion factors are usually given in handbooks.
Kilowatt-hour is actually an energy unit:
1 kilowatt-hour = 1000 J/s x 3600 s
= 3.6e6 J
= 8.6e5 cal or 860 kcal.
Please give an example that is contradiction to the law of conservation of energy.
