# eV to Joules

1 eV is equal to 1.6022e-19 Joules. eV stands for electron volt. Electron volts are a unit of energy typically used when dealing with nuclear physics. Electron volts refer to the energy gained by a single electron when the electric potential of the single electron increases by one volt. A Joule is equal to the work done by a force of one newton acting through one metre. The Joule derives its name from English physicist James Prescott Joule. A Joule can also be expressed in electrically terms as one watt-second. One watt-second is the energy released in one second by a current of one ampere through a resistance of one ohm. This converter can be used to convert any amount of eV to Joules. Or convert any two units of measure with the PunchlistZero master converter.
