Who was James Joule?

James Prescott Joule, (born December 24, 1818, Salford, Lancashire [now in Greater Manchester], England—died October 11, 1889, Sale, Cheshire), English physicist who established that the various forms of energy—mechanical, electrical, and heat—are basically the same and can be changed one into another.

What did James Joule discover?

Joule’s First Law In 1841 he discovered what became known as Joule’s First Law. This defined the relationship between the amount of heat produced and the current flowing through a conductor.

### Who named energy?

Thomas Young (1773 − 1829) first introduced the word “energy” to the field of physics in 1800, but the word did not gain popularity. Thomas Young later established the wave nature of light through interference experiments.

What is joule’s first law?

“Joule’s first law” (Joule heating), a physical law expressing the relationship between the heat generated and current flowing through a conductor. Joule’s second law states that the internal energy of an ideal gas is independent of its volume and pressure, depending only on its temperature.

What is the mathematical expression of joule’s Law?

Joule’s Law states that H (Heat) = I (Current) x V (Voltage) x T (Time the current is allowed to flow). Or, written differently, H (Heat) = I2 (Current squared) x R (Resistance) x T (Time the current is allowed to flow).
