The joule, symbol J, is a derived unit of energy in the International System of Units.
One joule is equal to the energy transferred to (or work done on) an object when a force of one newton acts on that object in the direction of its motion through a distance of one metre (1 newton metre or N·m). It is also the energy dissipated as heat when an electric current of one ampere passes through a resistance of one ohm for one second.
The kilojoule (kJ) is equal to one thousand (103) joules. Nutritional food labels in some countries express energy in kilojoules (kJ).
