Enter the energy in Joules and the conversion factor into the calculator to determine the energy equivalent in TNT.

## Joules To Tnt Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the energy equivalent in TNT from Joules.

TNT = J / 4.184 x 10^9

Variables:

• TNT is the energy equivalent in tons of TNT
• J is the energy in Joules

To calculate the energy equivalent in TNT, divide the energy in Joules by 4.184 billion (the energy of one ton of TNT in gigajoules converted to Joules). The result is the energy equivalent in tons of TNT.

## What is Joules To Tnt?

Joules to TNT is a conversion factor used to equate the energy released in an explosion to the energy released by a specific amount of TNT. This is often used in nuclear physics and seismology to quantify the energy in nuclear reactions or earthquakes. The energy of one ton of TNT is defined as 4.184 gigajoules. Therefore, this conversion allows scientists to express energy output in a more understandable and relatable way for the general public.
