What do you need it converted to? There are about 50 different things I can convert it to, dude. Centijoules? Themochemical calories? Dekajoules? Exajoules? Femtojoules?

Do you understand inch ounces?

0.2 joules = 28.322387 inch ounces

Or gram calories?

0.2 joules = 0.047781 gram calories

Just ask if those don't work for you. That's what calculators were invented for ;)

Yeah, doom. They are completely USELESS (go figure that I know all the useless trivia :rolleyes: ). ;)

Who uses joules anyway? Is it for like impact energy measurement or kinetic/stored energy measurements or what? I never really understood what we need another complete different set of measurements for......kinda like the Kalvin scale:D

It's in force, something I know about, I know MPH and such, I need to know how hard that is, it's rather complicated, if I were to hit you with .2 Joules of force how hard am I hitting you, like speed is what I want.

Oh and that's Kelvin, not Kalvin.

Ah, joules.......one of the many things I learned about but will never use again:D
I hear ya dooms, why the hell are we learning to graph inequalities in algebra? we're never gonna use it in real life.

Joules freakin suck.......we have to learn about them right now in science. I always asked my self and my friends about inequalities, and how we are supposed to use them when we grow up. I have yet to find the answer...

Im 16 and I don't have to take Chem in High School, I might have to take it in college though. Not sure if you have to take it for Law Enforcement0?

I do. Haha. Every chance I get, I'll plug an everyday problem into some sort of algebraic formula. I guess I just do it for kicks, or maybe I have too much time on my hands ;)

And dooms... law enforcement requires a certain knowledge of chemistry to do arsons inspections and alcohol and drug investigations. Of course, that's more forensics, but police officers do need to know some of it.
