## Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many ergs are in 'X' joules (X is the number of joules you want to convert to ergs). In order to convert a value from joules to ergs (from J to erg) simply type the number of joules to be converted to ergs and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from joules to ergs is:

X joules * cf = Y ergs

where

X = the specific value to be converted (in joules)

cf = the conversion factor from joules to ergs

Y = the result (in ergs)

*Example*

Let's suppose that you have a value of energy of 439 joules and want to express it in ergs.

439 J = (439 × 10000000) erg

439 J = 4390000000 erg

## Conversion factor

1 joule is equal to 10000000 erg
