## Newton meter (Nm) to joules calculator

Our Nm to joules calculator efficiently converts any value in newtons to joules per meter and also from joules to newton meter.

Newton is a unit of force and defines how much force is needed to be applied to an object to move it.

Joule, on the other hand, is the unit of work or energy and it defines how much work is done when force is applied to move an object.

The ratio of newtons to joule per meter is 1:1.

The conversion is derived from the equation of work:

$W = F \times d$

where:

• $W$ - Work done;

• $F$ - Applied force; and

• $d$ - Displacement.

The corresponding newton meters to joules formula becomes:

$J = N \times m$

where:

• $J$ - Joules;

• $N$ - Newtons; and

• $m$ - Meters.

So, rearranging the equation:

$N = J / m$

This is the base equation used to carry out the conversions in our Nm to joules calculator.

## How to convert newtons to joules?

As we know, the ratio of newton to joule per meter is 1:1, so the conversion can be done on your fingertips with your eyes closed. 😄
To convert any number from newton to joules, all you need to do is multiply the number by 1. Easy isn't it?

Let's take an example of a force of 8 newtons, and you want to know how much it is in joules per meter. Multiply 8 by 1, and your answer is 8 joules per meter.

Our newton meter (Nm) to joules calculator allows you to make two opposite conversions:

1. From newton to joules per meter.

2. From joules to newton meter.

## Convert joules to newtons

1 joule of work is said to be done if a force of 1 newton is applied on an object to displace it a distance of 1 meter.

More specifically, work is the dot product of force and displacement.

If both vectors (force and displacement) have the same direction, the newton meters to joules formula becomes:

$J = N \times m$

The ratio of joules to newton meter is, therefore, 1:1.

If you need to convert any number from joules to newtons, all you have to do is multiply it by 1. Yup, it's that simple.

For example, 7 joules in newton meters is:

$7 \times 1 = 7 Nm$

Once you grasp the concept, the rest comes easily.
